Society today is filled with overwhelming stressors and a cynical media that bombard people daily. For many, the local gym has become the ritual and place to go sweat your heated temperament away; however for some growth seeking beings yoga and meditation is the preferred method to clear your head and find some inner peace.
Over the last ten years yoga and meditation has jumped amazingly out into the mainstream as people have become more health conscious and focused on self-improvement. Yoga and meditation has been around for thousands of years and there’s no doubt will be for thousands more. The main challenge of building a yoga and meditation center is not the lack of business that is generated in the beginning, but it’s the sustainability that most owners find is the determining factor for success. People need innovation, they welcome change, especially individuals that are growth seeking. For them change is good, change represents evolution and discovery. Align Yoga and Meditation will represent that change, as the ever evolving center for self-growth and personal improvement.
Mission statement: Align Yoga and Meditation Center is passionate about, educating and enabling individuals to improve their physical, mental and emotional health while deepening their relationship with a higher power.

...thoughts.” These are some of the things that may come to mind when one thinks about Yoga and Meditation and all that their practices entail. However, there is much more to Yoga and Meditation than calm breathing, squishy mats, soothing music and downward dog. “Yoga is a combination of both physical and spiritual exercises, entails mastery over the body, mind and emotional self, and transcendence of desire (” Yoga, when combined with certain religious practices, like Hinduism and Taoism, takes a person places where they are able to see beyond their problems and fills themselves with inner peace and tranquility. The Yoga’s of Hinduism and Taoism play a very important role in their respective religions and how they help the individual transform spiritually, mentally and physically, as well as, achieve their ultimate goals. The Yoga’s seen in Hinduism involves the typical exercise yoga, Raja yoga, one sees at gyms and fitness centers. Raja yoga involves “bodily postures and controlled breathing techniques combined with mantras and meditation (Notes).” There are three other types of yoga and meditation forms that are not as well-known as the Raja yoga. They are, Jnana yoga, “the way of wisdom (Notes).” This form of yoga uses rationality to overcome ignorance and to understand by studying and discussing texts (Notes).

Yoga & Menopause

...Yoga as a Therapy for Menopausal Symptoms For some women, perimenopause is not an easy, smooth transition. Yoga is a regulator of the sympathetic system, respiratory system and the cardiovascular system. Combined with meditation, it is a form of exercise that has the potential to alleviate symptoms in women navigating the climacteric. In my review of literature, this essay will compare information from studies relating to the effectiveness of yoga and mind-body techniques in treating the symptoms associated with menopause. The midwife can offer yoga therapy to women who do not desire hormone therapy and would like to explore a non-allopathic alternative to treat her perimenopausal symptoms. Yoga is moving meditation, the union of mind and body. The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word "Yuj" meaning to unite. This means integrating all aspects of the woman- body, mind and spirit. The goals of yoga therapy are to improve the physical body, expand and relax the mind, and achieve a balanced life experience. The study of yoga and mind-body complementary and alternative medicine {CAM} is a fairly recent endeavor in the United States (Bond, 2007). The use of CAM, specifically by women, is on the rise in the United States (Schuiling, 2013). Complementary and alternative medicine {including yoga} in some midwifery communities is an essential part of midwifery practice, and in others, it is utilized only as a personal healthcare or lifestyle choice. It may be......

...Jessica Johnson February 15, 2013 Yoga Mid Term 1.) Corpse Pose * Sit on the floor with your knees bent, feet on the floor, and lean back onto your forearms. Lift your pelvis slightly off the floor and, with your hands, push the back of the pelvis toward the tailbone, then return the pelvis to the floor. Inhale and slowly extend the right leg, then the left, pushing through the heels. Release both legs, softening the groins, and see that the legs are angled evenly relative to the mid-line of the torso, and that the feet turn out equally. Narrow the front pelvis and soften (but don't flatten) the lower back. * I chose this post because it is a great restorative pose to begin or end a routine with. * The benefits of this pose is that it calms the brain and helps relieve stress and mild depression, relaxes the body, reduces headache, fatigue, and insomnia, and helps to lower blood pressure. * "Corpse Pose." Http:// Cruz Bay Publishing, Inc, n.d.

...Yoga is a scientific system of physical and mental practices that began in India more than three thousand years ago. Its main purpose is to help each one of us achieve our highest potential and to experience enduring health and happiness. It helps extend our healthy, productive years far beyond the accepted norm and, at the same time, improve the quality of our lives. There is a branch of yoga that is called Hatha Yoga. Hatha Yoga begins by working with the body on a structural level, helping to align the vertebrae, increase flexibility, and strengthen muscles and connective tissue. At the same time internal organs are toned and rejuvenated; the epidermal, digestive, lymphatic, cardiovascular, and pulmonary systems are purified of toxins and waste matter; the nervous and endocrine systems are balanced and toned; and brain cells are nourished and stimulated. The end result is increased mental clarity, emotional stability, and a greater sense of overall well-being.Because Yoga works on so many different levels, it has great potential as an effective therapy for chronic diseases and conditions that do not respond well to conventional treatment methods. According to the book “Yoga for the Special Child” children with Down Syndrome and other developmental disabilities who practice Yoga often surprise their parents and teachers with their quick mastery of basic motor, communicative, and cognitive skills. The same Yoga routine can help children with learning disabilities develop......

...Stefanie Cortes Yoga Research Paper Yoga is an ancient, Indian art and science that seeks to promote individual health and well-being through physical and mental exercise and deep relaxation. Although known to be at least 5,000 years old, yoga is not a religion and fits well with any individual's religious or spiritual practice. Anyone of any age, religion or life condition can practice yoga and derive its benefits. Yoga is the practice of putting the body into different postures while maintaining controlled breathing. It is considered to be a discipline that challenges and calms the body, the mind, and the spirit. By focusing on the breath entering and leaving your body, you are performing an exercise in concentration. After learning the history and practicing the throughout this fall semester, I have a new found respect and outlook for yoga. I would like to share with you an experience my family and I had to endure and probably how I was lead to signing up for this class. I come from a very close-knit family and, as such, all my life, so far, my cousin has always been more like a sister to me. We had children at the same time and always remained close. Last fall her son, Mikey was diagnosed with cancer. I can't even begin to describe the overwhelming devastation and complete sadness this brought to our family. My cousin was on an emotional roller coaster, and I can remember asking her how she stays so strong and how she got through all the treatments and......

...learn the basic poses of yoga. I came into this class thinking it would be an easy and relaxing class that would be a nice break from my stressful business and capstone classes. I thought we would be learning all of the poses I’ve heard so much about from friends who take yoga classes regularly. I expected to gain strength and learn how to become more flexible as the class went on. I was expecting to only do the poses and participate in yoga through the class and not have the opportunity to bring what I’ve learned to my everyday life. 2. How was what you experienced different from what you expected? - As I said before, I expected to just learn the basic poses. However, I didn’t expect to learn the actual names of the poses or what the purpose of each pose was; I never realized there was a reason to each pose or any actual benefit. I didn’t expect to be using so many different muscles that I would be sore the next day and would be able to repeat the poses without any further instruction. I came into this class expecting it to be easy in the sense that the poses would be done once and then forgotten but I’ve learned that we need to continuously do the poses in order to understand the meaning and reap the benefits and gain the strength. This class is very different than any other fitness classes I have taken at Temple because I can take the poses and techniques I have learned in class and bring them to my home and outside class to practice. I knew yoga was about relaxing and......

...Players Need Yoga When most Americans hear the word 'yoga', they think of a petite girl in a ponytail and leggings, carrying her purple yoga mat. This image has become so completely part of the culture of American yoga that the general response when suggesting yoga as a training method is either "That's for girls," or "But I'm not flexible." These responses were generated by an overall ignorance regarding yoga as a practice. Imagine, for a moment, a very large and muscular man with the soles of his feet together on the ground in butterfly pose. Now imagine that one man in a large room with twenty men much like him in the same yoga position. A scene like this is the new normal; entire sports teams and all other types of athletes are realizing the benefits of, and therefore adapting yoga to their training programs. Yoga is no longer just a class for women who want to feel more "grounded", but reformed into a vital tool for athlete training. The most notable effects can be seen in high-strung, often injured, National Football League players who may not be the first to say "Here!" on a yoga role call. The athletes, however, will experience benefits, such as quicker healing injuries, future injury prevention, and finally the creation of a more balanced mind in an athlete, which are just a few reasons yoga should be adopted as mandatory training in the NFL. While some players may feel reluctance due to the "girliness" of the activity, solid reasoning for the part yoga plays on......

...Yoga beyond relaxation Yoga is a discipline most often seeked out for practices of breathing, physical meditation and postures (Streeter et al. 281). As well, yoga has been observed to elicit relaxation through its constant practice. This paper observes how yoga can provide more advantages in our daily lives based on two studies that use the discipline of yoga to make an impact on the hormonal and nervous system as well as physiological behavior. First study is by Streeter et al. has focused on the relevance that yoga has on brain GABA levels. (Streeter et al. 1145) GABA is a neurotransmitter released in the brain important for reducing excitability of neurons. Thus, low levels of GABA has been found in people with anxiety and mood disorders. In Streeter et al. study, participants between 18-45 were screened and placed into two groups; the experimental-yoga group and the walking-control group. Results for this study showed that the yoga group improved in the scale levels for mood and decreased anxiety in comparison to the walking group (Streeter et al. 1150). In addition, the results correlate with the increased GABA levels obtained during yoga intervention. Second study by Burkett et al. is focused on the use of yoga to regulate arousal, a non directive generalized activation of the body, affected by the intensity of an activity or situation. Scientists emphasize that while arousal and anxiety may be used interchangeably, anxiety is perceived negatively and is......
