YOGA Many people today practice yoga for the physical benefits like increased flexibility, strength and better balance. However these are only some of the many benefits practitioners can expect to enjoy. Other benefits include reduced stress, better concentration, more restful sleep to name just a few. At Amana Yoga we offer instruction in both classical and modern styles. We have classes designed for people of all ages and abilities including prenatal and Yoga for kids.
MEDITATION Meditation is the natural companion of yoga. Through yoga we begin to practice deep relaxation, harmonizing breath, body and mind. In meditation we deepen those skills finding inward peace and silence. Eastern culturals have long recognized the rewards of enhanced creativity, emotional balance and sense of well-being a consistent meditation practice brings. Today meditation is used by people worldwide for the same benefits as well as to manage other health issues like chronic pain, anxiety and depression. Through our Sounds of Silence program we teach you the tools to create your own life enhancing practice.
What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is a 5000 year old system of medicine from India. At its root is the idea of holistic health and longevity—Veda meaning “knowledge” and Ayur meaning “life”. According to Ayurveda, health is a state of vibrant balance in which all the layers of one’s life are integrated—seeking to correct the imbalances that cause distress and, ultimately, contribute to disease. The goal of Ayurveda is prevention as well as promotion of the body’s own capacity for healing.
