Beckey Draper Yoga
I want to help people go beyond just fitness, I want to help connect them to their bodies and become more self aware. through a detailed focus on alignment, not only will you build a stronger body with better posture and less pain, you will also calm the mind and create more peace in your daily life. As we study our body we simultaneously study our mind.
In today's society many of us are feeling overwhelmed, stressed out and suffer from anxiety and sensory overload. I love helping people slow down, focus on their breath and dig deep into their body and mind. As we take the time to slow down we cultivate more joy in the simple things and can start to train our brain to react more from the parasympathetic nervous system, the rest mode of the nervous system, and turn dowm the sympathetic nervous system that runs on fight or flight mode.
