This is part of our holistic approach towards building a healthy body and mind through increased body awareness, balance, and coordination. The benefits of Yoga is widely accepted and research shows that yoga not only assist in assists in neuromuscular-development it also develops core strength, essential for good posture and correct physical alignment. Through yoga students improve their mind/body connection, learn to lead fit and healthy lifestyle and have a overall sense of well-being.
