In our daily lives, we can encounter many internal and external stressors. When stress events occur this activates the sympathetic nervous system which mobilizes the body for immediate action possibly ending in state of exhaustion.
Yoga offers natural therapy for stress by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, the part of our nervous system responsible for relaxation. When you activate the parasympathetic part of your nervous system you activate its natural cool-down effects and stop the cycle of chronic stress.
A typical yoga class consists of deep breathing, gentle stretching, building strength and balance, quieting the mind and relaxation.
Give yourself some well deserved relaxation at East Bank Yoga Studio.

I am super happy with the new location for East Bank Yoga operating out of Hills Stainless Steel, 4100 N. Northview Ave, Sioux Falls, SD. It’s just a jaunt away from Russell and Kiwanis. There is a large window facing a field. It is warm, clean, and inviting. There are 3 beautiful, live trees in the yoga room. There is plenty of space with a yoga friendly floor. East Bank Yoga operates out of Hills on select Tuesdays so register for class at firstname.lastname@example.org or 605.759.7459. Class will take place on Tuesdays, 11/8 and 11/22, 6:00-7:00 pm. Yoga is a practice of peace. Breathing mindfully is a path to grounding. Inhale slowly “I am whole.” Exhale slowly peace. Namaste, Jill Moncur
Satya means connecting with truth. Practicing yoga is one way to connect with our inner light. Breathing deeply, fuels the flames of well-being. Each day is a fresh opportunity to connect with the beauty of nature. I had 2 baby hummingbirds visit my flowers yesterday. Embrace a path that nurtures your soul. East Bank Yoga calendar is updated on a monthly basis. Namaste, Jill Moncur
