Naisha Yoga and Wellbeing
with Roberta Lemon B.S.Y.A. (C.I.)
Yoga Classes are completely personalized for all levels and combine techniques for correct breathing, posture,
and inner balance combined with the practice of Peace.
Hatha Yoga puts the responsibility for health and the
means for attaining it into your own hands. The body is an inter-relationship of ten, equally vital systems.
The practice of Yoga asanas, (or postures), ensures the healthy, balanced functioning of these ten systems.
- The Skeletal System. Science has shown that even the bones increase in strength through use. The
asanas move each joint to it's limit every day.
- The Muscular System. Efficient muscles are long, free of stored tensions and possess good tone.
The mental stress stored in the muscles is removed through the practice of the postures and correct breathing. When every muscle is stretched to capacity each day, the accumulated tension, tightness

cleanse the kidneys and skin and promote proper elimination.
- The Respiratory System. Senility, poor concentration and mental fatigue can be caused by lack of oxygen
in the brain cells. Deep breathing in the postures cleanses the lungs and stimulates the cardiovascular system. The Yogi develops a strong respiratory system, a strong breath and a
- The Endocrine System. The glands regulate the body's metabolism and vital functions. Certain
postures balance specific glands, such as the pituitary and pineal in the Head Stand and the thyroid and parathyroid in the Shoulder Stand.
- The Pranic System. Prana is the life-force and basis of Yoga practices. Through Yogic
breathing and postures one can have a direct experience of this energy and connect with its abundance.
- The Mental System. The correct
practice of Yoga produces mental clarity and a quality of attention that pervades the whole body. This understanding is the fruit of self-observation and inquiry, the purpose of
