Yoga Shala and Wellness Center: Once You Get To The Mat, The Hard Part Is Over!

By Elisha Neubauer

The word yoga originally appeared in the Sanskrit language and loosely translates to mean yoke, or union. This word was attached to the ancient practice as the concept of yoga was to create a yoke, or union, between the mind and body.

Although this practice is thousands of years old, it still maintains a popular spot in our modern society. This is due to the fact that this practice is able to be performed by just about anyone, regardless of age, shape, or fitness level.

In addition to its accessibility for everyone, regular yoga practice can increase physical coordination, promotes better posture, and limbers the body quickly. Other health benefits include increased flexibility & strength, detoxing impurities in the body, increasing lubrication of the joints, ligaments, and tendons, and toning of the muscles. This doesn't even begin to sample the benefits one experiences mentally and spiritually from a regular practice of yoga.

At Yoga Shala and Wellness Center, they understand the changes that take place within the body when beginning a practice of yoga and they strive to help clients in their journey to a more balanced lifestyle through the inclusion of this exercise.

"At Yoga Shala and Wellness Center you will find a warm and inviting space that promotes healing and wellness," Jamie Garrison, E- RYT 200, YACEP, Founder and Co-Owner of Yoga Shala and Wellness Center said. "Our intention is to provide an inspiring and supportive environment for you to experience your unique yogic journey and to explore your wellness goals."

An all-inclusive facility, the staff at Yoga Shala and Wellness Center believes that the hardest part of yoga is actually making it to the mat. With busy schedules and hectic lifestyles, fitting in the practice can be daunting, and is often cited as the reason why people partake. However, once on the mat, the practice takes over.

"No two people look the same in a yoga pose," Garrison said. "It's important to have healing in mind when on the yoga mat, without comparison or expectations. Allow yourself to experience the moment as it is and enjoy the journey."

Just as no people look the same in a pose, no two journeys or experiences are the same. This is why Yoga Shala and Wellness Center has one belief when it comes to their clients: to embrace each client's individual growth through mindful teaching, compassion, and respect. The Center is a community, filled with dedicated, highly qualified teachers and staff who each have their own driving reason for wanting to spread the healing power of yoga.

"Our teachers bring their insight, years of practice and training, as well as creative and caring energy to class every day," Garrison said.
