“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is an idiom so true that everyone intuitively agrees with the concept. However, in today’s modern world, finding time to invest in injury prevention and stress management can be a major challenge. The universality of this dilemma explains why we believe that yoga is right for everyone. Whether you are a performance athlete or just trying to adopt a healthy lifestyle, 4M Yoga is right for you!
Yoga is a Swiss-army-knife for cultivating a healthy mind, body, and spirit. It is a low-impact workout designed to develop strength, mobility, stability, and mental health. 4M Yoga offers both heated and non-heated classes for students of all backgrounds and experience levels. For a superior student experience, our studio is equipped with state-of-the-art infrared ceiling panels. They are quiet, heat evenly, and the overhead radiant heat feels natural, like being outside on a hot sunny day.
Don’t be misled by the term “low-impact” which simply means there is no undue stress placed on your joints. You will work, you will sweat, and you will see results – guaranteed. A dedicated practice will have a very “high-impact” on your life if you are willing to practice. There are many scientifically proven benefits of yoga including (but not limited to):
- Increased strength & muscle tone
- Increased flexibility
- Improved circulation
- Improved cardiovascular endurance
- Better stress response
