WHO WE ARE
WE ARE THE PREMIER WELLNESS STUDIO FOR SENIORS
Bella Buddha opened her doors in March 2012 and has seen its share of change.
We are a yoga and fitness studio that caters to the active-ager (our new term for “seniors”) and to those who are recovering from or dealing with illness or injury. Our classes accommodate all levels, so you never have to worry whether or not you can “do” the class or fret that “I’m not flexible enough.” With the philosophy “if you’re feeling it, you’re doing it,” you can be sure each and every posture can be modified to fit your needs. For those wishing to build strength and stronger bones, we offer Strong Yoga, a circuit-style exercise class that will challenge your cardiovascular system, balance, and flexibility.
WHAT DOES YOGA TEACH US?
Yoga teaches us about our bodies
When we practice the physical postures or exercises (called asanas), we learn how to move more freely and with greater ease and awareness. These postures help our bodies become strong and flexible.
Yoga teaches us how to breathe better.
When we breathe deeply and fully (called pranayama) and become more aware, we can bring peacefulness or energy to our bodies.
Yoga teaches us how to use our energy more effectively.
When we practice yoga, we learn how to use the life force energy in our bodies (called prana) to feel more relaxed, focused, or motivated.
Yoga teaches us how to quiet the mind.
When we practice yoga, we learn how to be still. This helps us to listen with attention and make good decisions.
