07 Feb Yoga Classes Billings MT
Did you know that Billings Adult Community Education is more than just professional development—which, of course, it also is, and these programs can possibly help you to achieve your potential professional goals—it’s also art programs, theater, etc. There’s also wellness programs, such as Yoga, which will be the focus of this post.
Most anyone can have success practicing Yoga. Yoga is for most anyone of any age. There are so many benefits of Yoga (and this could be said of most any physical exercise performed routinely). Yoga is a practice that combines physical exercise with mindfulness (mental discipline—meditation). The physical-mental combination establishes a peaceful connection of the body and the mind. Yoga is perfect for stress relief and focus. Often, people suffering from anxiety and depression are often encouraged to participate in Yoga, because of the many benefits it has on the mind.
What happens in a Yoga Class?
Yoga is a series of poses, also called postures, which are designed to strengthen muscles and increase those muscle’s flexible capabilities. One common style of Yoga, Vinyasa, is a series of interconnected poses (like a dance, hence the name). Breathing is an important part of yoga, and the control of breath is said to keep the body and mind quiet in unison. Most Yoga practice ends, or begins and ends, in some type of meditation. To begin class with meditation allows you to free up your mind from the stresses of the day, so that you can better participate in the class; and, to meditate after, is to allow your mind and body to be calm—a calmness which you, hopefully, take with you throughout the rest of your day.
Billings Adult Community Education offers a balanced flow yoga class, taught at the Limber Tree Studio, by Yungben Yelvington. The class meets every Monday from 5:45 p.m., until 6:45 p.m. the course is great for beginners to intermediate Yoga practitioners, and the cost is $72. The only other requirement is that you wear comfortable clothing, which is free of buttons and zippers—common exercise apparel—t-shirt and shorts—works fine.
