Jennifer teaches yoga at the YMCA in Plano, so you can join me anytime at that location! My yoga class is 9am-10am on Tuesdays at the YMCA, and I also teach an indoor cycling class on Mondays from 9:15am-10am. Feel free to try any of our fitness classes for a drop-in rate of $10/class (check-in at front desk). Please go to www.foxvalleyymca.com/schedules.asp and click on "Group Exercise Schedule" under the "Fitness-Central" heading for classes.

What Are The Benefits Of Yoga?
Virtually everyone can see physical benefits from yoga, and its practice can also give psychological benefits, such as stress reduction and a sense of well-being, and spiritual benefits, such as a feeling of connectedness with God or Spirit, or a feeling of transcendence. Certain poses can be done just about anywhere and a yoga program can go for hours or minutes, depending on one’s schedule.

Yoga's benefits are numerous and it gives a high payoff for the amount of effort involved.

The practice of yoga involves stretching the body and forming different poses, while keeping breathing slow and controlled. The body becomes relaxed and energized at the same time.
