Yoga is much more than the fancy poses or a form of exercise. Many yogis are surprised to find a myriad of ways that yoga can positively influence their life. The more you get on the mat, the more you learn about yourself, others, and the world around you.
HONOR YOUR BODY
Any exercise can help you become stronger and leaner but there’s something special about yoga that helps you appreciate yourself and your body on another level. Heart-opening yoga poses basically force you to be vulnerable and fully open. Yoga teaches you to push yourself but at the same time know when to honor your body.
LIFE IS A BALANCE
Balance is the key to everything. Having balance means that you have a handle on the different elements in your life. When you have balance in your life, you are living with peace and harmony every single day.
When all else fails, breathe through the moment. Breathing helps you through the most difficult yoga poses and when practiced outside the mat, breathing helps you stay focused and remain calm under challenging times.
Ultimately, yoga teaches you to become a better person. Each time you get on your mat, you re-discover yourself in new and beautiful ways.
