The Physical and Emotional Benefits of Yoga

I don’t consider myself to be a major “yogi”, but taking a weekly yoga class over the past year has taught me about the undeniable benefits a regular practice can bring about. Stretching, breathing, and contemplative thought all work in harmony to calm and emotionally nourish me....more

THE BUMP

The Yoga...Experience
