Two Quick Thoughts.

“Going to a class is not about accomplishing the perfect posture.  It’s about learning to build a new relationship with your body.” 

–Amy Weintraub

Want to relax?  🙂

“A small Scandinavian study that measured brain waves before and after a two-hour Yoga class found that alpha waves (relaxation) and theta waves (unconscious memory, dreams, and emotions) increased by 40 percent.  The increase in alpha waves and theta waves…means that the brain is more deeply relaxed after Yoga and that the subjects have better contact with their subconscious and their emotions.

“…Researchers at the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, in cooperation with the Yoga Research Society, found that practitioners experienced a significant drop in cortisol levels after a single Yoga class.”
