It's called Creative Yoga because there's a focus on making yoga work for whoever you are and whatever goals you have.
Every yoga pose can be modified or swapped to accommodate any level of fitness and physical limitation. Even quadriplegics can do yoga. We will create a yoga practice that works for you.
Whether your goal is to lose weight, improve your golf game, get better grades, build your business, improve your sex life, recover from injury, have deeper sleeps, reduce stress, or anything in between, we can create a yoga practice that helps you achieve those goals. And you'll get some benefits you didn't expect!
Anecdotal results and scientific studies agree that beyond the obvious benefits like stronger muscles and more flexibility, yoga also offers less obvious benefits that can help you with a myriad of goals.
The breath work in yoga trains your body to use your breath more efficiently. More oxygen is delivered to your muscles and organs so they can do their jobs with less effort and you'll have more energy to do to the things you want to do.
Breath work also results in more oxygen for your brain to help you make smarter choices for your general mental and physical health and for your personal goals.
The nature of yoga forces you to concentrate as you move through the poses. You will naturally carry this ability to focus into the rest of your life, including whatever goals you're working toward.
The meditative nature of yoga, which comes from focusing on one thing at a time, lets the subconscious do it's work without the rest of your brain interrupting it. This can result in clever new ideas in all areas of your life.
All of the above benefits combined mean you'll be more aware of all the things you can be grateful for and you'll spend more time in the present moment which is a key factor in happiness.
In addition to all of the above you'll be able to deal with what goes wrong in a calmer, and faster, way than ever before so you can get back to doing whatever it is you want to do.
Of course balance refers to your ability to stand on one foot but it also refers to managing your time, energy, and attention in a way that allows you to balance being productive with enjoying your life.
With clearer thinking, bright ideas, and more joy and peace you will become more flexible in the way you think about and respond to things in your life. Of course this will cultivate more joy and peace and along the way yoga poses will increase your physical flexibility.
As we age we lose muscle mass so actively working to maintain and/or increase muscle mass is smart. If you chose to do that with yoga which celebrates your individuality and cultivates all of the above qualities, you will also gain inner strength.
With clearer thinking, you will be able to make safer split-second decisions. With a better sense of balance and more physical flexibility and strength you will be less likely to lose your balance or twinge something if you do fall or have another sort of accident.
With a greater sense of peace and balance the mental aspects of injury recovery won't be as challenging. With more efficient breathing your body will receive the oxygen it needs for healing. With greater strength you won't lose muscle mass so quickly should you lose mobility for a time.
With all of these benefits it is easy to see how yoga could help you achieve any of your life goals.
