Would you like to improve your life just through simple movements and coordinated breathing? Would you like to decrease stress and increase positive energy? Would you like to relieve muscle tightness and improve flexibility? Would you like to refocus in the middle of your workday and counteract the stresses of poor posture and daily chores?

Gentle yoga provides all the benefits of a yoga experience at a slower, easier pace. By focusing on alignment principles, breathing techniques and modifications of basic poses, yoga becomes accessible to everyone, regardless of age, fitness level or physical challenges.

Offered at both Florida Hospital Celebration Health Fitness Center and the Florida Hospital Orlando Fitness Center, these yoga sessions begin with a brief relaxation of the breath, quieting mind and body and preparing to slowly lengthen and strengthen every muscle and joint through a gentle range of motion. Posture and balance are emphasized throughout and adjustments are made for everyone to feel comfortable in each pose. Finally, a short meditation encourages deeper relaxation and improves focus to prepare for the rest of your day.

Gentle Yoga is ideal for anyone interested in experiencing the benefits of yoga in a safe and supportive environment. Join us to see for yourself at Florida Hospital Celebration Health Fitness Center or Florida Hospital Orlando Fitness Center.
