When I first started Yoga with May Leung at a well-known fitness club, I wondered if I was out of my mind. This thing was hard! My core, legs and arms felt embarrassingly useless next to others in the class. I was scared that the stretches and lifting of my body parts would put me back in a wheelchair, or possibly break my bones.
Not so! May gave me the attention I needed to do alternative poses so I could move towards the strength and flexibility I need. Today I find myself getting stronger everywhere as I move more easily from one pose to another.
I am now in the process of working with May to offer a live yoga class, right in people’s home, or anywhere they choose. In May’s virtual class, participants from anywhere in the world can see and hear her, like a TV program; but it will be more like 2-way TV, as she will also see participants, and give personalized guidance in doing each position according to their personal ability.
Why yoga is hailed one of the best exercise programs in the world
If you want some concrete proof, as to why Yoga is so good for you, here is what Dr. Oz has to say about the benefits of yoga.
Yoga helps clean blood of waste material (through lymphatic stimulation), and trains us to loosen muscles and joints that are ignored in our day-to-day lives… Routines like sun salutation get the blood flowing as we warm up and free our body to experience the new stresses we will face…The practice also gets us to handle the weight of our body more effectively, which builds bone and muscle strength so we are more resilient to the frailty that afflicts many.
What is so special about our yoga class
May is a world class, certified yoga instructor with Yoga Alliance. Her virtual class will focus on a combination of exercise and energy balancing through breathing to increasing overall well-being. Students will flow from one pose to another on each inhalation and exhalation in breath-synchronized movement.
I will soon let you know the day, time, and low cost for this very limited class. Leave me a comment if you have any questions or want more information.
