My Appreciation for the Practice of Yoga

It’s more than just an exercise for me; it’s a way to open up the constrictions of my body and my mind at the same time. I appreciate that yoga is not always about rules or organized movement, but more about a freedom of movement that honors my body’s needs at that moment.

Northwest Florida Features

A New Lease on Life

Arvind Mani was first introduced to the concept of sensory deprivation—now called float therapy—in 2008. Eight years later, as his curiosity in holistic services expanded, he opened Mode, a Pensacola wellness center that offers several mind-body services, including float therapy.

KEEP MOVING

Not long ago, Sharalee Hoelscher was seated on an airplane next to a geriatrician, and so she took the opportunity to ask her seatmate a question: “What’s the most important thing we can do now to make old age easier later?” The doctor didn’t hesitate. “Keep moving!” she replied.

Nia: The Joy of Movement

Yoga instructor Kat Mansfield says she’s found the key to living a healthy life: It’s a worldwide wellness practice called Nia, which embodies form and freedom through 52 basic moves that blend dance, martial arts and the healing arts.

Miracle Masque

Since ancient times, indigenous cultures have used the clay formed by volcanic ash as a healing agent. The modern appreciation for all-natural health products has ignited fresh interest in the benefits of bentonite clay.

Practicing For Life

Yoga offers endless gifts for our bodies, our minds and the world. I’ve seen thousands of people transform their lives through consistent yoga practice.
