Yoga is Good for your Mind, Body and Soul.
Do you ever get tired of hearing how All-Encompassing Yoga is for You? During my yoga teacher training I worried that I would get sick of all the hoopla and hokey things that yoga claimed to do… but, the more I learned about yoga- and the more I experienced yoga- the more I came to Love Yoga! And all the “hoopla” and “hokey” stuff turned out to be true! Yoga really does help your Body, Mind and Soul!
Practicing yoga is an excellent physical workout that builds strength, balance and even endurance. It is also an amazing way to work on flexibility and teach proper body alignment. All of this working together allows for better posture , better movement, and an all-around better way of life.
Deep breathing exercises practiced in yoga brings extra oxygen to the body and brain, causing deeper relaxation and greater focus to what you are accomplishing in the present moment. This is good practice not only during an intense workout but in our day to day life.
Yoga has a spiritual aspect that is extremely positive. No matter your religious beliefs or non-religious beliefs we can all meet in Yoga and talk about positivity, light, work to improve ourselves, and help others along the way. The positive thoughts, actions, and speech we practice in Yoga are powerful! The optimism you feel in a yoga class will change your day—it could change your life!
The meditation pose we call Savasana at the end of each class is heavenly for some and also extremely hard for others. This pose takes practice. But, when you master the ability to slow down, to breath and just be still—I promise you will feel a sense of truly being connected -Mind, Body and Soul – and then you will know for yourself that the “hokey” claims of yoga are All True!
