Yoga is for Everyone! 

 Are you new to yoga? Sometimes starting a new activity can be scary, especially when it involves moving your body in ways that you have never done before. As a yoga teacher, I have heard countless individuals tell me “I’m not flexible enough for yoga” and “I could never do all those crazy stretches." But let me tell you a big secret… you do not need to. You do not need to be flexible to do yoga and you do not need to do lots of advanced postures to reap the benefits of yoga. 

Yoga is for everyone. If you step onto the mat and simply work on deepening your awareness with your body as well as your breath, you are already doing yoga beautifully. Simply put, in the yoga philosophy, we do the postures to get into the physical body. We breathe to connect to and calm our nervous system and mind. 

Yoga is a practice of mind, body, and soul. Pain, especially chronic pain, affects not only our body but also our thoughts and how we feel. At the Barrow Neurological Institute, we believe it is important that we also consider a holistic approach to pain. For this reason, the Lewis Headache Center is promoting wellness by offering ongoing complimentary yoga classes. 

During these sessions, you will be safely guided through a sequence of stretches and exercises that will help improve your flexibility, both mentally and physically. Your yoga teachers, Juliana and Mindy, are certified instructors and licensed physical therapists who specialize in headache. You will find yourself working on balance exercises, immersing yourself into full body relaxation, and trying meditation. The teachers will always be able to provide you with alternatives should you need to scale up or down in your practice. 

Please come join us for these wonderful classes and benefit from meeting some of your fellow headache friends. 

We look forward to seeing you!

In health,

Juliana & Mindy
