Education of our students to be responsible for their
own health and well-being is a priority.
Rexburg yoga has been bringing a consistent
yoga practice to this area since 1999.
Beginners welcome at any time. We have mats and props to use.
At Rexburg yoga we want students to feel good – body, mind and emotions.
It takes time, attention and continued practice. Join us.
We had a quick surprise graduation party for Shelly who graduated from Massage Therapy school this week. Breakfast cookies were on the menu, so here’s the recipe. And congratulations to Shelly for her accomplishment. Continue reading →
We have all seen advertisements or online photos of very thin, and very flexible women in beautiful and challenging yoga postures. This is a constant message to the subconscious mind that yoga will make one look like this model or if weight loss is on the mind, then the message would be that yoga can help weight loss.

While its true that a yoga practice does not provide all the movement a body needs, it does provide most of the natural human movements including the squat. What’s the big deal about squatting? Continue reading →
Yoga is the only kind of movement one needs. Is that true? Let’s look at a standard, garden-variety yoga class: inside a room, on a mat, for about an hour, two or three times a week.

While achieving an amazing balancing feat like we sometimes see in advertising is unrealistic for the average person, a reasonable expectation for a regular yoga practice is improved overall balance.
