Yoga

 
Yoga is well known as a doorway to opening energy in the body. Through the practice of asana and pranayama (breathing techniques) the blockages that inhibit the free-flow of prana, or vital life force energy, begin to melt away.
 
"Any reason for practicing yoga is a good reason.
Enhancing flexibility and releasing stress are as noble a purpose for performing yoga as the awakening of spirituality. This is the great gift of yoga – it serves and nourishes us at every level of our being and spontaneously contributes to greater well being in all domains of life. Yoga will help you discover gifts within yourself that have remained unopened since your childhood – gifts of peace, harmony, laughter, and love."

Darcy Lubbers' yoga classes beautifully integrate the physical, mental, and transformational qualities of yoga. Attention is given to strengthening the body, increasing stamina and flexibility, balancing the emotions, and also calming the mind.

Close attention is paid to alignment, form, and breath. By including breath awareness techniques, the practice of taking full, deep breaths is encouraged, enabling each person to fully connect to their emotions, mind and body, and ultimately to experience a deeper sense of peace and presence.

Ms. Lubbers has been practicing yoga for most of her life, and has trained over the last twenty years with a number of yoga teachers in the Los Angeles area. In 2005 she completed her Yoga Teacher certification with Saul David Raye in Santa Monica, CA. 

Ms. Lubbers is also available for individual consultation regarding yoga therapy for emotional/ spiritual issues as part of her private practice.
