The mind is listening to the body and the body is listening to the mind
Gentle yoga class last evening started with a guided meditation while in an asana, undoing the work of the day. The class proceeded at a mindful pace allowing the body to warm up, stretch, release stress and ended with an essential oil treatment. This class is a good option for stress relief and taking time to slow down your pace of life.
There are various reasons to attend a yoga class resulting in multiple benefits. If you wish to improve your strength, this occurs in both Hatha and Beginners yoga classes. Muscle strength is an indicator of joint integrity. At East Bank Yoga we will build strength
If you wish to improve your flexibility it takes 30 seconds of continuous stretching for your muscle spindle neuron to actually allow your muscle to habituate to a new, longer length. Take your time, and be gentle. When you feel tissue stretching along the bones as long as that stretch is not extreme it’s probably healthy. When you feel discomfort in a joint, stop doing what you’re doing.
Meditation Group meets monthly at 2:00 on a Saturday, see calendar for details. Meditation is a gift to your mind and body. Regular practice of meditation allows us to gain mastery over our minds so that we can still our thoughts to focus on the experience of being. If we mentally dwell on the past or the future, we may miss the experience of living in the present moment. Setting and visualizing goals is wonderful, however we can bring our thoughts into our current experience by taking steps to create them now.

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
