In meditation, we bring mind and body into a quiet space to witness the fluctuation of thought and emotion. Within this quiet observation, we can identify each seed of thought as it grows to frame the way we process and interpret our lives. Therapeutic yoga is focused on dysfunctional movement therapy by releasing chronic tension buildup and re-orchestrating kinesthetic patterning.Don't be intimidated by the idea of taking up yoga. Yoga for beginners classes are designed specifically to ease you in gradually into a practice. Yoga poses in beginners classes are easy enough not to put off first timers but just hard enough to stretch your muscles and give you a real workout. What's more there is such a range and variety of yoga styles and instructors for beginners to try that you will certainly find the right yoga practice for you.
