September is National Yoga Month

Happy National Yoga Month!

National Yoga month is a national observance by the Health and Human Services. You can visit the Yoga Health Foundation website to find out more. If you practice yoga, you already know the benefits. If you're thinking of trying yoga, here are a few positive aspects:

  • Stress relief
  • Flexibility
  • Increased strength
  • Cardiovascular conditioning
  • Balance
  • Inner Peace
  • Pain relief 
If you've tried yoga and didn't like it, this month, give it another go. Try a different studio or a different instructor. If you attempted a Vinyasa class, try a Hatha class. Who knows, you may surprise yourself. :)

On September 30 studios, teachers, and practitioners can participate in a worldwide yoga event. The Time for Yoga event will be held in communities all across the globe at 7:00 p.m., local times.
