When performed appropriately under the guidance of a skilled instructor, Yoga can improve posture, flexibility, core strength as well as reduce stress. Historically, Yoga has been viewed as a psychospiritual practice designed to alleviate human suffering. For years through the practice of Yoga students have discovered how thoughts, relationships, posture and breathing are all interwoven. Matthew Taylor, PT, PhD, RYT notes in the February 2011 Central Arizona Health & Wellness pulication that the process takes time – Yoga therapy is not a quick fix, but aimed to get at the root of the suffering. One of the key differences between Yoga therapy and “the therapies” is that the student, rather than the therapist, is empowered to experience and manage their own relief. Matthew notes you need not be strong or flexible or change any of your beliefs in order to practice Yoga. At CoreCrossFit you need not wear tight clothing, perform complex postures or chant to some diety (unless of course you want to!). Our Yoga classes are perfect for the beginner as well as the more advanced student.
