YEA!!! It's time for Yoga!!

On Tuesday afternoon I go to a yoga class. YogaReach is a therapeutic, educational yoga program that provides an integrated system of yoga poses designed to promote the student's unification of mind and body.

The mission of YogaReach is to inspire individuals of all ages and abilities to develop educational, physical, mental and social competence.

Breath control, body awareness and sensory integration are implemented.

YogaReach helps to:

~increase attention, focus and concentration
~build self-esteem and confidence
~develop strong muscles
~strengthen hypotonic body parts
~loosen tight limbs
~foster language and interpersonal skills
~use positive self-behavior

.
I love YogaReach.
