A Year of Yoga

Last August, my yoga practice turned one year and I can’t get enough of it changed me as a person, my life & well-being. I reaped the benefits of practicing, which is a lot, and it was so good that it became part of my daily routine.

A Year of Yoga

I DO YOGA…

…in the morning. With my coffee.

…as part of my workout routine (warmup/cooldown);

…when I’m emotionally vulnerable or when I’m in pain (physically or emotionally) because of stress;

…when I need to free my mind;

…when I need to calm down or when I’m overwhelmed.

…before I go to sleep.

But I didn’t do yoga to lose weight..

I intend each practice for balance, mobility, vitality, increased flexibility and muscle strength. It’s been a year, but I still can’t do a proper chaturanga or headstand. I do modified chaturanga, tho. And headstands…I’m not sure if it’s for me. But that’s okay.. because yoga is not a competition or a show. It’s a journey and perfection is not th destination or the final prize. Inner peace is.

“Yoga is not a work-out, it is a work-in. And this is the point of spiritual practice; to make us teachable; to open up our hearts and focus our awareness so that we can know what we already know and be who we already are.”

– Rolf Gates
