Yoga, Yoga Therapy & Ayurveda | Stillwater

What is Yoga & Yoga Therapy?

Yoga can be an effective method to reduce stress and anxiety and unlock pain and tension. The physical postures of Yoga move the whole body, its muscles, ligaments and joints through full ranges of motion. Combined with breath work, relaxation techniques and meditation, yoga brings balance to the whole body.

Chronic stress can lead to a variety of health and emotional problems. According to the Mayo Clinic, yoga can be an effective method to reduce stress and anxiety. Other health benefits of a regular yoga practice include:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improved circulation
  • Back pain relief
  • Strength & flexibility
  • Improved balance & coordination
  • Better breathing

Private sessions and Yoga Therapy can address specific needs such as:

  • Beginner’s who want to learn the basics before attending a group class
  • Adaptations for injuries or physical restrictions
  • Addressing specific health conditions
  • Fitting into your schedule
  • Developing a personal home practice
  • Cross training/injury prevention

What Is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda, also known as “knowledge of life” is an holistic system for living and self-healing in harmony with the principles of nature. It offers us tools to take ownership of our health through self-care routines, diet and lifestyle recommendations and individualized yoga practices.

Yoga, Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda are ancient, rich sciences of self-exploration and self-development that incorporate a broad range of practices and techniques which can be tailored to suit men and women of any age, experience level and individual needs. Anyone can “do” yoga and everybody is a yoga body. You do not have to be flexible or perform pretzel-like maneuvers.

We want you to have the best possible experience – ask us where to start.

Marilyn offers a variety of classes throughout the week at the Stillwater location.
