Good morning! It’s so wonderful to see everyone.
Today, we’re chatting about one of my all time favorite things, yoga.
Yoga has the ability to take me out of my head and connect me with something greater than the busy world happening around me.
My yoga journey continues. The lessons have been many and they have enhanced my life both on the mat and off.
Attitude There are literally thousands upon thousands of beautiful yoga images in magazines and on social media. You see amazing balance and binding postures that can be intimidating. These images can communicate a misconception about yoga. There is no rule in yoga that you have to be hyper flexible, a certain body type or able to balance on one finger to be good at yoga. The practice is never about how it looks. It’s always about how it feels.
Breath Yoga encourages deep, smooth rhythmic breathing which leads to smooth and graceful movements. By honoring the breath we can create a sensation of flow within the mind and body and create a balance both on the mat and in the real world.
Honor Your Body Listen to your body and respect what it needs. We all have different body types, abilities and individual experiences. It is vital to the practice that we honor and respect our bodies. Yoga is about feeling good. Whenever it’s needed don’t hesitate to back our, re-adjust or modify the pose. Find a way to find comfort and ease in poses even when they’re challenging.
A Journey Yoga is a journey that helps you learn more about your body, your heart and your mind. Explore who you are and allow yourself to show your authentic self to the world.
Savasana Embrace this time to bridge your practice with life.
Find that place that gives you peace. For me that place is on the mat.
Ironically, this evening I’m going to a meeting to find out more information on training to become a yoga teacher. I’m not sure where this is all going, but I know in my heart it’s all going in the right direction.
How does yoga fit into your life? What have you learned from yoga that applies to real life?
If not yoga, then chat about whatever is on your mind.
be the best version of YOU,
