Frank Kavanaugh, SNN Channel 6, Interviews Ilse on Charlotte Today, February 27th, 2004
I started yoga about 6 months ago. After a brief hiatus due to our hurricanes, I have continued. I am amazed at how yoga is reshaping my body, reducing stress, and improving my flexibility. Most of all the insomnia I had from menopause is gone and the tingling and numbness in my hands in the middle of the night are gone. I am reading about yoga philosophy. And I enjoy the calm and soothing direction from Ilse.
Thank you Ilse."
What is Hatha Yoga?
"The great advantage of Hatha Yoga exercises is that they bring all
muscle groups into play.
Muscles are slowly stretched to full length. The asanas, or poses, are
held in perfect stillness, causing blood to flow evenly throughout the
body. With the improvement of muscle tone and flexibility of the
joints and spine, sluggish and aging glands are revitalized. Through
Yoga we also learn that deep, controlled breathing is nature's
tranquilizer and rejuvenation.
Each Yoga session is followed by a deep and complete relaxation period,
where we learn to use the power of autosuggestion to consciously relax every part of our body, as well as calming the mind.
Yoga truly holds the key to a balanced body, mind and spirit."
Ilse was the kick off presenter at the 2004 Bon Secours Women's Connection Expo in Punta Gorda, February, 2004, giving a presentation on the benefits of yoga.
Ilse, I enjoy your class so much and it has helped me with chronic back pain. If it wasn't for yoga I do not know what shape my back would be in. Very glad the girls at the job told me about your class about 3 years ago. Looking forward to next Wednesday.
