Over the course of my studies, I started to realize how much health and fitness information is out there. I thought, how confusing all of this information must be to anyone trying to adapt a healthy, balanced lifestyle. There’s so much conflicting information, which can be overwhelming and even discouraging. I believe that we all have good intentions of taking care of ourselves, but it’s easy to get distracted. It’s also possible to feel like your physical limitations leave you no choice but to accept your current health situation.
My heart has guided me to put together a profile of eastern and western approaches to our modern health concerns. Stress, seems to be the most significant issue. This is my personal yin and yang coming together to offer you the most sensible approach that fits your body, mind and spirit. The principles of yoga make so much sense when taking care of yourself. It has become the core of my existence. However, my love for exercise always inspires me to keep moving and feel energized. Keeping a balance between the two dynamics has challenged me quite a bit over the years. I have learned from my own over trained body injuries, to the calm strength I get from yoga, how to manage them so they are both affective and not-counter productive. I believe there is something for everyone out there, even for those with physical limitations. Remember, when given half a chance, your body will heal itself, and when you surrender, your mind will follow.
There’s never been a better time to pay attention to your personal health.
Every Body Can Be Well.
As soon as I became pregnant with my first child, I started practicing pre-natal yoga with Lina. It helped soothe the aches and pains of pregnancy and made my day to day more manageable. I also feel that it helped keep my pregnancy weight under control since practicing yoga reminded me to take better care of myself during this time. She was also great at adapting the yoga sessions to my different stages of pregnancy. Read the rest of this entry »
They say when one door closes, another opens… The closing of Spa 2 in Paramus of spring of 2006, brought Lina to Body Designs Fitness Center, where I am a member. I absolutely love her class, and wish she taught there every day! Read the rest of this entry »
I started training with Lina 2 years ago. Although, I felt like I was in good shape when I started, I kept complaining about those stubborn 5 pounds that just wouldn’t come off. With Lina’s nutritional counseling and personal training, not only did I loose those last few pounds but my body is in the best shape it has ever been in. Read the rest of this entry »
I am so thankful that I discovered the benefits of Yoga therapy. Lina was an amazing teacher and mentor throughout my healing process. Through yoga therapy she helped me strengthen my knee, which I injured over 6 years ago but was still having problems with it. She also helped me cope with my anxiety. She made me feel like I was her only ‘patient’ and really helped me through getting over some of my fears. Read the rest of this entry »
Practicing yoga for the past 5 years with Lina has been a life affirming experience. Linas’ Yoga practice has helped me both spiritually and physically. Her sense of humor has made her classes very enjoyable. I can only add that her Yoga teachings have had a strong and positive influence in my life that I find to be invaluable.
