A regular yoga practice can improve flexibility, strength and balance, reduce stress, lower blood pressure, increase energy and improve sleep.
Welcome to YogaWorkz!
My guiding tenet is to help you feel, look and be your best through Yoga. As we practice Yoga together, I will help you develop an appreciation for what you, your body and mind can do. My specially designed Yoga classes will help stimulate your body and mind keeping them in perfect balance where they thrive.
In my classes, learning and moving go hand in hand helping you experience a complete mind and body exercise experience. In a quiet and peaceful environment, students receive personalized attention and assistance to make the yoga asanas accessible, modifying poses so they work for all. Classes are small and personalized and are open to everyone.
Yoga is an ancient physical practice that combines safe and effective movements to increase strength, balance, and flexibility. Balance is gained from active and passive movements that also engages the brain to create new neural pathways, keeping the brain sharp and active. Yoga also improves focus and attentiveness through breathing and meditation and can reduce stress.
Yoga has many benefits that can provide:
Tennis pros like Pete Sampras, Novak Djokovic, Venus and Serena Williams have all made a regular yoga practice part of their fitness training.
For older adults, research shows that a regular yoga practice not only improves balance and mobility, but it may also help ease back pain and relieve depression. Yoga keeps the body agile while helping to maintain proprioception, the awareness of where your body is in relation to everything else (it’s what lets you touch your nose with your fingertips when your eyes are closed).
Better agility and balance translate into a reduced risk of falls, the leading cause of injuries to those older that age 65.
Nancy’s classes are well suited for those with osteoporosis, osteopenia, low bone density, balance, posture and flexibility issues or just someone looking for an accessible yoga class. Sessions have been developed using Meeks Yoga Prep™ along a continuum from least to most spinal compression.
Come join me for a welcoming, safe, supportive and fun yoga practice!
