Yoga is a transformative body-mind tradition that has been practiced for thousands of years. Physical postures called "asana" are traditionally combined with mindful breathing to explore a progressively deeper awareness of the body, mind, and present moment. Yoga classes at IOBT are taught in small groups, providing opportunity for the instructor to give plenty of individual attention and hands-on adjustments. Our yoga classes are designed to challenge students physically as well as to encourage improved strength, balance and flexibility. The side effect is healing, relaxation, and a better self-awareness that comes through the mind-body connection.
A regular yoga practice can help increase flexibility, skeletal and muscular alignment, strength, and focus. It is also traditionally practiced to aid in the development of self-awareness through the realization of the mind-body connection. At IOBT, clients use yoga to address many goals, including:
Increased strength, flexibility and balance
Increased body awareness
Improved breath capacity and lung support
Increased concentration in sports performance
Understanding of the mind-body connection
Pre- and post-natal fitness
Pain management due to injury and chronic and progressive illness and/or disease
