Yoga and How it

Benefits Your Health and Well-Being

Yoga is a mind and body practice. It is based on a 5,000-year history in ancient Indian philosophy, with styles and variations that combine physical  postures, breathing techniques, and meditation, and relaxation to improve control of the mind and body, as well as enhance well-being.


Today's yoga has four main focal points:

  • exercise

  • strength

  • flexibility

  • breathing


Combined, these focal points all boost physical and mental well-being.

Dr. Jane Brotski teaches many styles of yoga classes locally for women and men, including specialty classes designed for women who are pregnant or who just recently gave birth. Participants  in her classes benefit physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
