Mindful Yoga

Yoga with Imagine Well Being is designed to help counteract the stress of everyday life. 

The mind is a part of the body, so we are working with body and mind together in our classes. We call this a mindful, moving meditation. You will find our yoga classes to be a warm and welcoming community with a compassion-based approach to self-care and well-being.

“Yoga is an ancient meditative practice.  Scholars believe that yoga has been practiced in India since before recorded history.  Early yogic teachings focused on understanding the world by promoting harmonious relationships with nature and appealing for peace in human interactions.”1
