It’s not about adding one more thing to our already packed schedules, it's not about flexibility bragging rights and having the cutest, latest, name brand yoga gear, it’s not even just a set of poses we do on our yoga-mats. It's about overall health: simplifying our lives, and getting back to basics. Because, let's face it - without our health, can we really live happy lives and daily do the things we love??!!
My yoga has been a journey of recovery and striving to thrive again after a bundle of life altering events in 2006 left me with a great need for change. Yoga is now my lifestyle that is the foundation of my well-being. I now live my life with joy and excitement about the future!! I build strength through my yoga practice and hardly realize I’m doing it. In the process I have a good time and find a deeper sense of peace than I have ever known before!! Taking good care of myself means keeping a positive attitude, as well as eating a natural diet, and taking time for self-care each day. This helps me maintain a level of fitness that allows me to live a life I can enjoy. The ability to eat natural food will vary depending on where we live and our resources. We all have to work within our means. I have found it to be a journey: an ongoing process of making little steps in the right direction toward better health!
As our health begins to improve, we'll have more energy to invest in the things we love and before we know it, a self-propelling healthy lifestyle has begun! The more we invest in our health, the more we get back for our efforts, and the easier it becomes to maintain that health. Before you know it, it’s not just a plan to get healthy, it’s a change in our thought patterns and a new lifestyle is born!! For me, yoga is a therapy: A way to simplify life, improve my health, and let go of excess! Breathing deeply, experiencing fully, and feeling more mindfully!
A new perspective.
