The Benefits of the Practice

1 For an extensive list of  "75 Health Conditions Benefited by Yoga...", including references, see Timothy McCall, MD's website

There are many health and wellness benefits of practicing yoga, and there are an increasing number of scientific studies to back up these claims.1


The following is just a sample of the list:


Decreased Stress, Anxiety, and Depression

Increased Strength and Flexibility

Better Posture

Increased Cardiovascular Wellness

Improved Immune Function

Help with Menopausal and Perimenopausal Symptoms

Better Balance

Improved Quality of Life for Cancer Patients and Survivors

Improved Sleep Quality

Improved Present-Moment Awareness


The benefits of practicing with You Are Here Yoga lie in my teaching philosophy.  I believe in making yoga available for everybody, and every body.  You do not necessarily have to be flexible already, nor do you need to be in fantastic physical shape.  That's why we call it a practice!  The most important traits necessary for you, whether you are a seasoned or beginning yogi, are an open mind, and a willingness to try something new.
