Why does Mindful Movement focus on yoga, mindfulness and meditation?

 

Because they are great tools to optimize health and wellness! However, not everyone is comfortable in a traditional western yoga environment and not all western yoga is appropriate for every person.

Our goal at Mindful Movement is to help you find a yoga and/or meditation practice that fits your individual needs, in order to optimize physical performance, mental outlook, and physical and mental strength!
