This coming Independence Day is a great time to celebrate the freedoms we enjoy here in the US that many others in the world do not have. It also a time to look inward at our own dependencies that are not serving us well. Whether it is unhealthy eating habits, destructive thoughts about ourselves or others, or wishing we were living someone else’s life, we can lose our ability to live a life without suffering through it.
A regular yoga practice helps us calm the fluctuations of our mind bringing equanimity and balance to our present selves. It is here where we can begin to rid ourselves of dependencies that seem to control our every decision, once we see that they are not a part of our genuine experience.
Students taking Josh’s yoga classes will gain freedom of expression, through an emphasis on balancing postures, strengthening postures, meditation and pranayama techniques. By discovering their true selves, students will learn how to practice yoga safely in their own bodies, while finding strength and balance they did not think they had. Josh is a registered Yoga Alliance teacher and looks forward to sharing his love of yoga with you.
