Yoga for Longevity
NOT YOUR TYPICAL PRACTICE SPACE...
YET A VERY SACRED SPACE FOR PRACTICE
At Taj Wellness, we focus on developing a yoga practice for LONGEVITY, one that endures the phases of life and matures as your body ages. Developing consistency in practice yields sustainable results. We strive to create a safe and welcoming environment where everyone can explore their physical and mental potential. We want to instill a practice that allows you to build on what you may already know and take your practice to the next level. We believe that safety comes first, quality supersedes quantity, and everyone is welcome.
Our hatha (physical) yoga classes are taught to promote strength and flexibility while moving with mindfulness and intelligence. All classes will offer an alignment-based approach to asana (postures) with an emphasis on breath awareness. Learn to engage the mind with a one-pointed focus, stretch and strengthen the body, while exploring the "inner terrain” of the body/mind connection.
