Setting goals and intentions can be a powerful way to focus your energy and create positive changes in the new year. It’s essential to approach these goals with a sense of curiosity and openness rather than focusing on perfection or achieving a specific outcome.

Yoga is an ancient form of mind-body movement from India. It includes pranayama (breathwork), asana (postures), and dhyāna (meditation). The benefits of yoga are unlimited, as it can impact your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. From the Sanskrit verb root yuj, the word yoga is commonly translated as “to yoke”, as it unites body movements (through yoga postures) with the breath. Yoga practice can also bring the mind, body, and spirit into alignment.
Yoga seeks to unify the mind, body, and spirit. As you become more aware of your internal self, you may start to be smart about catering to your body’s needs. Yoga enhances body awareness and encourages focus, commitment, and discipline to help you tune into your body and teach you to be aware of your lifestyle choices.
Acro Yoga classes combine the wisdom and alignment of yoga and strength-building of acrobatics with the trust and communication skills of partner yoga.

The benefits of yoga practice are vast, as it supports your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, and can be different for each yoga student. Sharing your Acro Yoga practice with a partner enhances these benefits, helping you to build strength while cultivating human connection.
The practice of meditation involves cultivating awareness of the breath to create spaciousness in the mind. By focusing the mind, meditators develop concentration and clarity. A meditation practice can help you achieve an emotionally calm and positive state to see the true nature of things. Daily meditation can reduce stress and increase calm in your daily life, so you can return to the present moment, clear your headspace, cultivate self-awareness, and connect with yourself and others.
Meditation is a simple yet profound practice. The intention is not for thoughts to cease completely but to become aware of them without attachment or resistance. With each meditation session, it becomes easier to find stillness and balance.
