What is Yoga?

Yoga is an ancient practice that unites the mind, body, and spirit through a combination of postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation. With roots in India, yoga has evolved over thousands of years and has become a popular holistic discipline worldwide.

What Can I Expect in a Yoga Class?

Yoga classes typically involve a sequence of physical postures and breathing exercises, followed by a period of relaxation or meditation. At Elite Pilates & Yoga, we offer a variety of yoga styles, each with its unique emphasis and benefits. Our experienced instructors will guide you through each pose, offering modifications to accommodate all skill levels.

Yoga offers a myriad of benefits, including but not limited to:

  • Improved flexibility and balance
  • Increased muscle strength and tone
  • Enhanced respiratory, energy, and vitality
  • Maintaining a balanced metabolism
  • Weight reduction
  • Cardio and circulatory health
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Protection from injury

What Do I Need to Start?

Starting yoga requires very little: just your willingness to try and an open mind. Here are a few tips for your first class:

  • Wear comfortable clothing that allows for movement.
  • Yoga is practiced barefoot to enhance stability and balance.
  • Bring a yoga mat, towel, and water bottle. (Mats are also available for rent or purchase at the studio.)
