LOVE (Live) Stream Testimonials:

“I’ve found it to be seamless and wonderful!” – C.S.

“I can’t tell you enough how much of a blessing your Love stream classes have been for me over these past couple of weeks. It is so wonderful to see your familiar happy faces during this time! It makes such a difference to be able to practice with you and the other local yogis together as a group versus me following a workout on a yoga app. I cant even compare the two.  Thank you all so much for bringing such joy to our lives!” – C.C.

“Thank you so much for this! I pay monthly but travel a lot for work (usually) and really miss my yoga classes when I am on the road. This will allow me to get classes from my hotel room wherever I am. Was hoping and praying you would continue them. I have been loving them at home.” J.B.

“Thank you so much for these live streaming classes! I can hardly express how wonderful it is to do a class in real time with your great instructors, knowing that my fellow yogis are also experiencing it along with me. It’s the opposite of ‘isolation’ — it’s a feeling of community that we all need now… In addition, it’s helpful to have a set time around which to organize my day, something to look forward to, and — it’s great to see the studio room and the teacher… A positive all the way around!!” L.B.

Go IN and live life on purpose!

Okay, you’ve thought about doing yoga or perhaps you are already practicing and want to learn the benefits of a regular practice. The primary benefit of practicing yoga is Self-realization: a stilling of the mind’s disturbances so you experience life at its deepest and most profound level. Yoga helps to focus intentionally and live life on-purpose.

There are also many other extremely beneficial side effects!

“Side Effects” of a regular yoga practice

According to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, physical inactivity and poor diet are just about to overtake smoking as the leading cause of preventable death in the United States.  (For more on yoga and diet, see the article “Yoga and Nutrition” in our Inspiration section.)

A regular hatha yoga practice can go a long way to address the following issues:

Prevent some forms of diabetes

All forms of exercise including yoga help to stabilize blood glucose levels which are an important factor in the prevention or minimization of diabetes.

Prevent arthritis

One of the best preventions or relievers of arthritis is motion and exercise.  Using all the muscle groups in a typical yoga practice strengthens bone and improves coordination and balance.  The low-impact form of exercise present in yoga postures can improve endurance, muscle strength and joint flexibility as well as range of motion.

Relieve and heal backaches

Unlike pain medication or heating pads, yoga goes right to the core physical cause of a backache helping you to recognize areas of chronic tension and trace them to their physical/emotional roots in order to let the pain go.  Overall fitness and muscle tone is essential to your spine’s health.  The more aerobic forms of yoga feed your spine with vital oxygen (the spine gets almost all of its nutrients from your breath) and helps to create flexible hamstrings and hip flexors which can free-up the lower back.

Improve mental health

A huge part of any yoga practice is calming the mind’s ability to disturb yourself and others. A regular yoga practice can reduce or eliminate the root of anxiety disorders and depression and lead to a more peaceful state conducive to confidence, grace and calm efficiency in pressured situations.

Prevent or heal from heart disease

A regular yoga practice can reduce blood pressure, and lower cholesterol and body fat, all major factors contributing to cardiovascular disease.

Prevent the bone loss of osteoporosis

The low impact nature of Yoga postures can be especially effective for post-menopausal women and older men in building and preserving bone density.

All of these side-effects make it possible for us to live more in harmony with our bodies and minds so that they may assist us in connecting with our true nature of peace and fulfillment.  We invite you to come practice with us and experience for yourself the joyful benefits that come from the direct experience of yoga.
