Yoga

I love yoga!

Yoga is a wonderful way to link mind, body and spirit.  Yoga means “to yoke”, join together.

Yoga is a deeply moving and effective traditional healing model that can profoundly improve our health and well-being.  Patanjali’s eight-limbed path, classical yoga, embraces the rich traditions and healing practices of ancient India and is a healing practice worth pursuing.  The mind, body and spirit aspects affect a strong healing response.  Our mental health will improve.  So will our physical health.  Most, importantly, we can expand our spirit and bring our consciousness into communion with the universal consciousness.  Truly this is liberation or enlightenment!  

  This might all sound overwhelming.  Just start practising. As I have become more interested and active in my yoga practice, I have seen my strength and balance increase. And not just physical balance, but emotional and mental too.

  And remember. It’s a yoga practice, not a yoga perfect. Just do it and don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Comparison is the thief of joy. This quote from Theodore Roosevelt is so true. In all aspects of your life, comparison can lower any sense of pride and enjoyment.  Do your yoga practice at your level, breathing and turning your thoughts toward your breath. It can be a deep moving meditation that gets you out of your stressful thoughts and relieves your physical aches and pains.
