Yoga is a gentle way to stretch and awaken your body

  • Improves posture
  • Improves breathing

"You are never too old (or too young)" to do yoga.  Every person's body is different.  Flexiblity
varies from person to person.  Therefore, you have to listen to "your" body and learn what "your" body is saying.

Yoga On The Go classes are held in Bastrop and Elgin, Texas. Instructor, Ruth Jansa, teaches Hatha Yoga, one of the most commonly practiced types of yoga in the Western Hemisphere. Hatha Yoga's main theme is maintaining the health and integrity of the spine.

Hatha Yoga is for the gentle stretching of the body.  It awakens the body by moving it through it full range of motion - stretching, strengthening, and balancing each part. This consists of forward bends, backbends, twists, inversions, standing, and balancing poses as well as relaxation and breathing techniques.

These movements; along with the conscious use of the breath, removes stiffness and tension from the body.  Poses were developed to improve posture, promote health, and increase vitality and energy.
