Happiness with Yoga :)

Happiness is not a matter of events, it depends upon the tides of the mind. – Alice Meynell

Yoga enables us to see how our mind affects our body, and our life. We learn to watch our thoughts and find the peaceful space within our inherent, authentic selves – Kreg Weiss Yoga

Still your body with Yoga & Meditation. 

Use your breath to calm your body. 

Listen to your intuition. 

Try to hear the voice within you as well as the cacophony around you.

Yoga & Digestion

Yoga encourages peristalsis, which moves waste and toxins through the colon.  It may favour the proliferation of healthy bacteria and also develops the abdominal muscles – all of which contribute to a healthier gut.  Pranayama can help oxygenate the entire body, including the digestive tract.
