When posed with the question of “What problems does yoga solve?” Their could be many answer’s to this, but I’d like to come at it from what problems does Dawn Patrol Yoga solve with our yoga classes.
In short, yoga solves these 4 main issues.
- Stress and Anxiety
- Flexibility and Movement
Now let’s dive deeper…
- Longevity – Everyone wants to live longer. I would say that most of the people coming into the studio at an older age start to ponder this concept and realize that living a healthier lifestyle and adding yoga into their daily routine will help them live longer. If people realize this in their 40’s or 50’s, imagine if we could convey this message to the younger population of how important living a healthier lifestyle is earlier on in life and how this will affect the rest of their life.
- Stress and Anxiety – Yoga can reduce stress and anxiety by giving yourself an outlet, learning proper breathing techniques and looking inward to reflect on feelings and emotions. Yoga can teach you to look at yourself acting a certain way, or feeling a certain way and realize that you are truly the Awareness behind your emotions, and even though your body or mind is feeling one way, you do not have to be a slave to those feelings and emotions. YOU HAVE CONTROL, even when everything in your body tells you otherwise, you are not your emotions and they do not have power over you.
- Flexibility and Movement – “Asana” is the physical aspect of yoga where you hold poses or match movements to your breath. Yoga poses require flexibility, strength and balance. As you gain control over your body, poses will begin to get easier and you will move better. To truly master a yoga pose, is to do it with little to no effort. Yoga poses can also help your body with stiff joints or old injuries.
- Community – We are all looking for our pack. At Dawn Patrol Yoga, having smaller class sizes not only helps you reach your goals faster, but it also allows us to build a community where everyone knows each other and their is a friendlier environment. You will never come to a class here and feel lost in a crowd.
