MISSION – Several local residents were invited to celebrate a Halloween Grand Opening by participating in the very first yoga class in the new Supercali Yoga Studio.

This class honored many students for an amazing effort in keeping the yoga practice going in the community for the past three years. The Supercali yoga studio is located in the new Nape Woapiye Holistic Center north of Rosebud Exchange, in a large modular building west of the former location. Classes are being planned for local residents who want to relieve the everyday stress accumulated in their body.

Yoga was developed in India about 5,000 years ago, as a comprehensive system for wellbeing on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Yoga has many benefits to help raise quality of life by promoting fitness, stress relief, wellness, vitality, mental clarity, healing, peace of mind and spiritual growth. Students state they feel better and enjoy more flexibility in the body after an hour of yoga.

The classes are led by Laurie Russo, a licensed massage therapist who owns and operates the Center. Everyone is welcome to attend the sessions for a nominal fee. Mats are provided. Physical exercise, moving body with breath and mediation are the grounding factors of success in yoga practice.

“Yoga works the body,” stated Russo, who has been serving the residents of the Rosebud Reservation since 2005. “You also walk away from a session with better mental clarity.”

The sessions involve several yoga poses which stretch the body very effectively. Many people believe yoga is just about meditation, which isn’t entirely true. Stretching and conditioning your body through yoga is a great way to relieve stress and work your way to better overall fitness. An hour of doing yoga stretching and poses is quite the workout.

Regular yoga is beneficial to the body. Participants claim a range of benefits from it. They have more energy and sleep better. Other benefits include less pain in your joints. Participants may also experience lower blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar levels and a lower risk of heart disease.
