Yoga and Mindfulness Made Easy

Yoga Made Easy Canby Oregon

Yoga is one of the oldest and perhaps the most comprehensive form of keeping the body fit and healthy. 

Developed over 4,000 years ago by yogis and sages in ancient India, it consists of various postures called ‘Asanas’, which are held for various lengths of time. Most of the postures can be performed by the majority of people. Contrary to the belief that yoga involves tying yourself up in knots, they can be learned quickly and easily in a class situation. ‘Asanas’ means literally a position held comfortably, and the way that real yoga is to be done is gently and comfortably.

There is no great strain involved. Rather than leaving you worn out like other sports, you can emerge from your yoga session feeling much more relaxed and energized. The main benefit of yoga, however, is the impact that it has on the mind. Through the manipulation of the body’s glands, it helps to calm not only the body but also the mind.

Yoga and Mindfulness Made Easy

For optimum health and wellbeing by Kim Ryder Yoga Therapist and Instructor

Yoga will keep your body in an optimum state of health, keeping all of the joints flexible, the digestive system working efficiently, and the skin looking young and fresh.

Incorporating and focusing on the breath and movement together brings about an abundance of calm and peace within the mind and body system. The postures will build strength, create flexibility, and stimulate and improve circulation. Always start your daily practice by including some warm-up movements to prepare the body for the stronger holding postures.

Make sure you are not straining your breath. Each round of breathing while holding a posture should be done in a calm and relaxed manner. Take care to focus on your whole body while you work, be sure never to strain or force yourself during your daily practice. Allow our body time to get used to working this way, be gentle on yourself while you fast track your way to health and well-being.

Yoga Simple Practice with Kim Ryder

Yoga Easy Pose Practice

Yoga’s underlying purpose is to reunite the individual self with pure consciousness. In fact, the word Yoga means “union”, thus liberating us from the illusion of what is not real, that prevents us from connecting to our own true self. Regular yoga practice will defuse the effects of stress and tension leaving the mind calm and the body peaceful.

What are the benefits of Yoga?

Yoga helps to loosen up the body, both joints, and muscles, encouraging greater flexibility, particularly along the spinal column. The flexibility of the spine is essential for maintaining a healthy body and a youthful appearance. The postures systematically massage all of the internal organs, especially the abdomen and digestive system. Mindfulness is being in a present state of mind, this means to be conscious in the here and now.
