Illuminating Yoga

It seems to be that more than ever, people are looking beyond traditional medicine, sports, performance arts, and exercise routines for alternative paths to well-being. With more research in the sciences of consciousness, movement, and neuroplasticity, we are seeing a shift in the old health paradigm. Yoga and the Feldenkrais Method both offer to facilitate this shift on an individual and cultural basis. Together and individually, they offer flexibility, strength, stress reduction, enhanced posture, refined focus, healing, and recovery.
