"Yoga is a superfood.  Kindness is a superpower."- Libby Edson

The physical practice of yoga is a "controlled stress" experience.  Being on the mat provides an opportunity for us to notice the way we interact with the yoga practice, both mentally and physically.  This practice of noticing ourselves in relationship with our body and the practice of yoga can be like eating a superfood-many benefits with one action. 
The physical practice provides the opportunity to develop physical strength, flexibility and discipline.  During the practice, we also mentally are practicing focused attention, open monitored awareness and kindness to ourselves.  Cultivating this awareness and mindfulness on the mat will then, in time, lead to a more optimal way of interacting with the world.  Ancient practices that offer this advice have now been scientifically proven to be of tremendous value.  
 Our goal here at YoMIND is to provide FREE guided practices for all levels and we will be adding videos as we make them.  Be mindful that this page is a work in progress and the videos we are offering are, in most cases, have been filmed and produced by the instructors themselves.  Please honor our intention to provide resources and forgive some of the minor technical flaws (as we are learning) until we secure funding to bring in some professional film makers!!  Enjoy and let us know how your like them!
