Movement

Renee Johnson, yoga instructor performing warrior 2 position in Freestone Park in Gilbert AZ

Movement generated through physical yoga poses (Asana) helps facilitate flexibility, stamina, and strength. The poses also stimulate all of the major systems of the body including the digestive, endocrine, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems.

Mindfulness

Renee Johnson, yoga instructor performing reverse namaste, prayer position in Freestone Gilbert AZ

Mindfulness used in conjunction with breath work (Pranayama) helps to create body awareness and aides in dealing with stress. There are many different types of breaths but the main purpose of each type is to unite your mind and body. 

Meditation

Renee Johnson, yoga instructor sitting Lotus position in Freestone Park in Gilbert AZ

Meditation focuses the mind inward and creates calmness for the mind and balance for the body. Meditation can empower the mind and help us understand how stress affects the body. The use of guided meditations is often helpful in creating an environment for this balance to occur naturally.  

I also teach weekly classes at these wonderful institutions:
