Yoga is a process of reconnection and awareness. When we become more aware in our lives, we have more choice and freedom. The practice invites gentle curiosity to explore our choices and freedoms to build confidence in trusting ourselves and learning to create new boundaries to take care of ourselves. With this trust, we connect to new or renewed sense of “Self”.
Yoga practice stimulates neuroplasticity, which creates and/or deepens new and/or healthier neural pathways. Yoga also reduces the tendency to revisit and reinforce the existing, problematic neural pathways
