Welcome to Mind Body Fusion, merging mental, physical and spiritual wellness through studio yoga classes and Yoga on the beach. We incorporate traditional and unique styles of Yoga including Hatha, Vinyasa Yoga, Gentle Yoga and Yoga for dancers and Yoga for athletes. Yoga classes create healthy, strong, vibrant bodies and cultivate creative, tranquil minds while simultaneously improving the endocrine, emotional, nervous and muscular systems. Our yoga classes are here for residents and visitors to Tampa Bay, St Petersburg and Seminole, and Indian Shores beach.
Yoga can be challenging, restorative and often both, depending on the style or level. The meditative quality of rhythmic movement with breath helps students gain a state of personal balance, focus and inner peace. Students of Mind Body Fusion classes are encouraged to explore their own body, mind, and soul and work at their individual level. Yoga is a practice that combines physical challenge or release, rhythmic movement meditation, breath control and much more.
Keep in mind, it is not a religion. It is often practiced by Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Muslims and other. However, the yoga philosophy and practice emphasizes good ethics and morals along with mind-emotional intelligence as well as life balance. Yoga is a systematic technology to improve physical health, free the spirit, and improve mental focus. With practice, the restless mind is calmed and controlled yet energy is enhanced and the spirit uplifted.
As science is beginning to validate many claims made by yoga practitioners and therapists, you may question how a tradition dating as far back as the seventh millennium could have arrived at these truths. As of 2019, hospitals are incorporating yoga therapy.
Our yoga classes focus on finding a balance between physical strength and flexibility and a balance between over challenging yourself versus being “wimpy.” In addition, within any challenging Asana or Sun Salutation, students learn to find calmness within the challenge. This practice moves from the mat to everyday life.
