Yoga has many physical benefits, including encouraging relaxation, increasing flexibility and strength, lowering blood pressure and toning muscles. Yoga is a Sanskrit word meaning a "union of the body and mind." Yoga combines the physical postures or asanas, breathwork, and spiritual connection through meditation. Crown Soul Yoga Flow created by Founder Carmen Carriker combines movements of dance, core strengthening, stretch flexibility and a choreographed yoga sequence flow to tribal sounds and rhythms. Kemetic Yoga & Reiki Meditation connects to the African origin of the discipline with postures, prayers, chants used to raise vibrations in African traditions, heal and make deeper connections to the forces of nature, Earth, Air , Fire , Water, and Spirit.
