“Flexibility Not Required” is their slogan, and for good reason – Karuna Arts does customized yoga practices to fit all needs! “If you can breathe you can do yoga,” said Owner Anne Basco. “Yoga is a natural state of union. Our lives are deceptively unhinging – before we know it what once came easy has become challenging. Yoga harmonizes, energizes and balances the modern lifestyle. Join us, you don’t know what you are missing!” Regular yoga practice heals. It starts on the surface, takes hold, then roots into the deepest potentials of your well being. There is no fast, quick fix to yoga, no short cuts adding excessive heat to your yoga practice places your system under stress, you’ll need to commit yourself to your own greater good by submitting to the slow, warm simmer of your attention. How is your low back? …your neck? …your shoulder? ….your hip? With regular yoga practice and attention, the nagging sites of mischief–low back, neck, shoulder, hip or etc.– thin and become transparent. There is no short fast route with yoga. You must take up the seeds, prepare the soil, nurture and trim the growth trusting that your most meaningful purpose is at hand. Since beginning my practice in Physical Therapy in 1986 and having practiced and taught yoga since 1995, I have found that consistency rooted in deep awareness is the source of healing. Each turn, each twist on the yoga mat served to ground me through life transitions and strengthened me when the “living was easy”. What I’m saying is: you may be struggling whether you realize it or not and yoga can heal, even if all you seek is a little relief from a pain in the neck. View your health as a daily ritual. Eat to sustain health more than desire. Your body needs rest and your body needs activity. Get outdoors for vigorous regular walks, running or cycling to support your cardiovascular health and your spirit in nature, and keep yoga in your life for the long term. Established in 2002, Karuna Arts Yoga is now located in a big new space at 605 S. 223rd Street in Des Moines.
