As I pondered over the close of an old year and in quest for capturing the most in the year to come, I decided to revisit some Yoga books that have encouraged my journey and inspired me along the way. Even after studying Yoga for over 14 years, I still love going into the basics and principles of Yoga to reflect and reconnect. Most of what I have learned about myself and how I move through my days and in relationship, I have learned on my Yoga mat. This ancient art when practiced with dedication becomes a figurative expression of what is literally going on in my life, so I can see more clearly and decide how I want to be. One thing that I know for sure is, if I need to see the joy in my life, it becomes more obvious after my Yoga practice. If I have muscular tension or a lot of stress, I go to the mat and it is literally transformed. If I need space or even an attitude adjustment, I show up fully to breath and workout hard to detox my mind, body and spirit. Yoga has become such a resource to me to live and live well. For this reason, I am inspired to share with you more about Yoga. I will leave you with a quote from and amazing Yogi that has taught me so much and then I will hope to see you in the studio. Namate.
¨Yoga is about achieving a balanced mind-neither being swayed by too much ambition nor dragged down by failure. Yoga teaches you not to over value achievement, to take in stride setbacks and to reassess, and push ahead with life. The practice of Yoga can help you to find peace in having achieved your best.¨ Shivapremananda
