The classical techniques of Yoga date back more than 5,000 years. Today most people who practice yoga are engaged in a program of physical postures (asana) designed to purify the body and promote physical strength and stamina.
Practicing yoga refers to the practice of uniting the body, the mind and the spirit (breath). Through this practice, we work to tame the mind, and focus on the breath clearing the body of blockages. It is a powerful tool for self-transformation.
As a result, one may feel physically restored, and energetically refreshed.
The benefits of a yoga practice will be noticed immediately in a general sense of well being. With a regular practice, long term benefits will begin to unfold. Some include an improved quality of breath, a clear, bright mind and a release of tension, as well as a deeper knowledge and acceptance of oneself.
The body and the mind typically feel rejuvenated after a yoga class.
Everyone, regardless of physical limitations, can practice some type of yoga. Special attention is given to those who have health challenges. It is important to address any limitations or physical conditions, enabling modifications to be made, if necessary.

In yoga practice we twist from side to side, and bend forward and backward. The poses can be difficult on a full stomach. If you think you might get hungry or feel weak during yoga class, experiment with a light snack such as yogurt, a few nuts, or juice about 30 minutes to an hour before class.
