85 SOUTHBOUND IS BUMPER TO BUMPER JUST IN EARLY MORNING TRAFFIC. STRESS RELIEF AND A POSITIVE MIND SET ARE A FEW POSITIVES OF YOGA. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING IN. YOU AND I WERE TALKING JUST OVER THE BREAK. YOU WERE THE FIRST STUDIO IN THE AREA. YES WE STARTED BACK IN 1991. HOW WAS IT RECEIVED? IT WAS AMAZING. CLASSES WERE FULL ALL THE TIME. 20-25 PEOPLE EVERYWHERE I WENT. I GOT DIFFERENT PLACES TO DO IT. HOW IS IT GOING NOW? PEOPLE NEED IT RIGHT NOW DON’T THEY? THEY DO YEAH. YEAH A LOT OF STRESS RELIEF BUT BECAUSE OF OUR LIFESTYLE INCREASE THE FLEXIBILITY MUSCLE TONING AND THE RELAXATION AS WELL. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL ME. [ INAUDIBLE ] I DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO IT. TELL US A FEW STEPS IF WE CAN’T GO TO THE STUDIO THAT PERHAPS YOU CAN DO IN DAILY LIVES. YOU CAN DO THINGS THAT OPEN UP THE BLOOD FLOW AND GET THE BACK FEELING BETTER. I HAVE BACK PROBLEMS. AND DOING LITTLE THINGS LIKE THAT CREATES THE LOWER BACK AND THE HAM STRING BEING TIGHT. WE CAN DO ALL KINDS OF THINGS STANDING AND SITTING. WE HAVE CLASSES IN THE CHAIR. THAT MIGHT BE FOR ME. WE CAN TRY OUT FOR THAT ONE. SITTING IN A CHAIR. [ LAUGHTER ] YOU CAN TRY IT. ALL RIGHT. TELL US A FEW STEPS. BRING THE SEAT ABOUT HIP WIDTH. OPEN UP THE SHOULDERS AND I’M GOING TO STAND BACK SO YOU CAN STAND FORWARD. INHALE AND BRING YOUR ARMS UP. ROUND THOSE SHOULDERS BACK. THAT FEELS GOOD. NOW WE ARE GOING TO THE LEFT ARM. BRINGING THAT ALL THE WAY UP. AND BEND THE ELBOW AND ROUND THAT SHOULDER BACK. LET’S DO THE RIGHT. IN HAIL BRINGING THE RIGHT ARM UP STRETCH AND MOVE THAT ARM BACK. WHY IS STRETCHING SO IMPORTANT IN YOGA. WE OPEN UP THE LIGAMENTS AND TENDONS. HAVE YOU HAD CASES WHERE PEOPLE HAVE HAD MAJOR INJURIES AND DOING YOGA HELPED TO HEAL THEM? WE HAVE NINE INSTRUCTORS ONBOARD AND THEY ARE THERAPY INSTRUCTORS WITH YOGA. WE WORK WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE CHRONIC DISEASES CANCER, HEART, WEEKEND WARRIOR IN THE GARDEN ALL WEEKEND. NORMAL DAY-TO-DAY THINGS THAT WE GET STUCK. IT HELPS WITH YOUR HEALTH AND BREATHING. MENTAL HEALTH AS WELL. I SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT ARE INTO YOGA THEY GET A LEAN BODY. HOW IS THAT ACHIEVED? YOGA IS A BIG UMBRELLA. BUT IT IS MORE THAN THE POSES. IT IS WHAT YOU ARE THINKING WHAT YOU ARE EATING AND THE MORE YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF MIENLD AND BODY. IT IS AN OPTIMAL HEALING SYSTEM. AND WE DO A TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM. AND THAT IS PART OF THE PROGRAM. IF YOU WANT TO TAKE IT DEEPER WE CAN DO THINGS THAT WILL HELP YOU ON A NUTRITION NAL BASIS. IT IS ALLOWING YOU TO FEEL LIFE FULLY WITHOUT THE PAIN. WHO DOESN’T WANT THAT RIGHT? WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? WE ARE AT 120 HALTON ROAD WHICH IS NEAR THE MALL. IT IS CALLED YOGA STUDIO. ALL RIGHT.
