Yoga for me, started out as a way to balance out my running and strength training. I used it instead of stretching and found so much enjoyment in the breath and movements. As I’ve delved deeper into my practice, seeing my body’s current limitations, and pushing past them, I’m amazed at my growth.
One thing that you learn as you practice, where you are now, is not where you need to stay. Growth is inevitable with practice, you just have to thank your body for its support and see where you can go.
Yoga is the connection of breath and movement and getting deeper into creates a bigger umbrella for breath and movement. You can literally become more mindful as you brush your teeth, engage with nature, do squats. Your yoga off the mat is in anything and everything.
Yoga is NOT just about movement and poses and flexibility. It is much bigger than that. And in this time of uncertainty and the craziness of 2020, learning how to breathe through situations and respond mindfully is clutch. Namaste 🙏🏾 🧘🏾♀️
