Reflexology is an ancient technique based on the theory that there are reflex points in the feet and hands that correspond to every muscle, nerve, organ, gland, and bone in the body. Pressing on these points breaks up congestion and helps the nerves to relax or to get stimulated. This, in turn, reduces vascular constriction so it improves the flow of blood and lymph in the body. As circulation improves, toxins are released. There are 7,200 nerves in each foot. When the body becomes imbalanced, through the course of daily living, nerve impulses can become blocked. This means that nerve impulses to the muscles, organs and glands of the body are obstructed to some extent. Reflexology stimulates nerve endings and starts up nerve communication. Reflexology also promotes endorphin release, enhancing one’s sense of well-being. Treatment is performed by a therapist. During the treatment experiencing tenderness at certain areas of the foot means there is a problem or stagnation in the area corresponding to the reflex point. After resting for few days, the area can be reworked again. In time, there will be less tenderness as the problem heals. Practitioners of this modality assert that performing reflexology once a week can catch most problems early and speed up recovery.
My yoga class is a 60 min Beginner - Level 1 Mindful Movement Vinyasa Flow
Vinyasa is a style of yoga when movement is coordinated with the breath. The students move from asana to asana with precise attention to every pose. Vinyasa yoga offers flexibility, strength, balance as well as mental and emotional wellbeing. I will incorporate meditation and pranayama (breathing technique) into my yoga practice to nourish your physical body, mind and spirit. I will do modifications for each and every student to customize the practice to meet their goals. Yoga lifts spirits, making you happier, improves focus, boosting energy leaving you less stressed and anxious.
