Breaking Myths at Nella Yoga

"The 5 Myths of Yoga"

1. Yoga is all about flexibility. 

2.Yoga can only be practiced in a studio. 

3. Yoga is a western and upper-class trend.

4. Yoga is a religion.

5. Yoga is for thin women.


In Eastern Africa and India, the traditions of yoga were practiced to bring the spirit, mind, and body back to its self, through connection of breath, movement, and meditation. This concept is seen in many areas of self-help, in addition to many religions and spiritual practices around the world. Offering classes that are affordable, with convenient class times, and most importantly, encourages you to expand your current lifestyle in holistic health is Nella Yoga's mission.
