New at the Yoga Center - monthly Wellness Weekends

Ayurveda, Yoga and holistic therapies for a healthy body, mind and spirit.

We all want wellness - a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being Take back control of your health and well-being and join us once a month for a holistic approach to healthcare. Each month different teachers and practitioners will teach us simple practices and exercises that can be incorporated into your life to improve and balance your body, mind and spirit.

We will offer a new look at nutrition, healthy cooking classes, as well as a range of ayurveda workshops, yoga therapy sessions and alternative therapies.

Ayurveda is the “Science of Life”; it is a sister science to Yoga and it uses herbs, diet, exercise and breath (pranayama) to bring a state of balance to all aspects of your being.

Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga. The yoga therapist offers any combination of movement, breath, imagery, and relaxation, in a manner that is not generally addressed in a group Yoga class.

Please accept this invitation to take more responsibility for your lifestyle and health behaviors - you won't regret it!
