Absorb the Benefits of Nature's Touch

- Nature soothes our mind and calms our senses
- Just looking at a natural scene has been proven to activate parts of the brain associated with balance and happiness

Discover what makes our yoga different.
Have you been in a yoga class and felt uncomfortable with the eastern traditions
commonly used with the original physical poses? Or maybe you shy away from yoga because of things you've heard? We've felt that uneasiness. It doesn't have to be that way. The fact is yoga pre-dates Hinduism, which is commonly associated with the creation of yoga. Yoga is a methodology, not a theology. Body and Soul Fitness was born out of a desire to embrace the health benefits of yoga and to glorify God. No karma. No namaste. No om. No chanting. Yoga, pure and simple, as given by God to heal, relax and restore our body's systems.
The yoga you see most often in the world takes a humanistic view. That's where we differ.
“If you look at the world, you'll be distressed.
If you look within, you'll be depressed.
If you look at God you'll be at rest.”
~Corrie ten Boom
As noted in a 2012 study, an estimated 75-90% of all doctor's office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints (source: http://www.webmd.com/mental-health/effects-of-stress-on-your-body)
. There has been no better time to jump in and take advantage of the health benefits that a yoga practice, especially outdoors, can give you to naturally help your body release its daily stress.
