The word “yoga” means “union” and refers to the spiritual union between the mind and the body. By harmonizing the breath and holding the body in steady poses or “asanas”, yoga helps to create balance within the body. Asanas are specifically designed to sculpt the body, release muscular tension, and tone internal organs. By linking breath with movement, yoga strengthens the mind-body connection. Regular yoga students benefit from less stress and anxiety, a centered mind, and an enhanced sense of well being. Regular yoga practice at Purple Blossom Yoga Studio will cultivate mindfulness and presence for a healthier lifestyle.Our skillful instructors help all our yogis, beginner as well as experienced, go deeper in their practice while respecting individual needs. We encourage all yogis to move towards a mindful practice that balances the physicality of asanas with breath work and meditation.
