We are so excited to offer Yoga at the Y for the first time this May.
The YMCA’s mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body. Yoga is definitely a class that encompasses all three healthy areas. One of our Y instructors, Danica Izaguirre, has been teaching Pilates at the Y for 3 years. In February 2018, she was certified in Yogafit Foundations class and in April of 2019 she took a Yogafit Communications class. She is new into her journey, but the Y will offer some beginning classes in May. In this class you will stretch, hold poses and move through a series of exercises with a relaxation piece at the end of class.
Yoga has many benefits for all ages and all levels:
1. The effects of Yoga can help manage stress. The effects are comparable to massage and may help with the management of anxiety and depression.
2. Yoga has been shown to improve strength and balance in older adults.
3. Yoga can assist with weight loss as well as improve metabolic health.
4. Yoga can help to reduce lower back pain and lower blood pressure.
5. Yoga can help with cardio and circulatory health.
6. Yoga can improve respiration, energy and vitality.
7. Yoga can improve athletic performance.
8. Yoga can increase flexibility.
9. Yoga can provide protection from injury.
