People practice Yoga for all different reasons, and they also don’t practice yoga for many different reasons. One of the reasons is they believe they might just fall asleep. I remember first practicing yoga it was a job requirement at the time so I thought oh gosh fine I will do it,
If I wanted the job which at the time was travelling around the world teaching people about health, I had to start learning and teaching yoga. I was always about hard and fast. If I wasn’t sweating, if I wasn’t groaning If I wasn’t in pain I wasn’t working hard enough. To then start practicing yoga was a complete shock. It took me around 6 weeks of practicing 3 times a week to finally let go of my ego and except this practice as it was. Doing what I was doing smashing my body, working 18 hours a day, always stressed and thinking negatively was only going to last so long. Every second week I needed a massage, I was always getting niggles and injuries but I had excepted this was just the norm.’Thats when it all changed for me’
Doing what I was doing smashing my body, working 18 hours a day, always stressed and thinking negatively was only going to last so long. Every second week I needed a massage, I was always getting niggles and injuries but I had excepted this was just the norm.
When I had finally excepted yoga practice and I let go of fighting it and just started being my whole life shifted. From the way I thought, the way I treated my body, the way I ate, the way I spoke and more and more success came my way.
I was living in harmony.
So whether you think yoga is not for you or is for you, give it a go more than once, and practice regularly. By doing yoga once a month only when you are feeling the tension and tightness will not serve a long term solution to your aches, pains or stress.
is not when you participate. Yoga is a practice for that reason you will engrave alignment, breath, strength, mindfulness and when practicing yin or even I Hatha is a practice that will leave you body just as if you came out of a massage.
I now breathe, among my stress and anxiety, eat differently, less worried, and feel a lot more energised because of this.
From yoga 101
Simply put, yoga (the verb) is a practice.
By calling the process of joining the mind and body systems into one wholly integrated mind-body system a “practice” reiterates that perfection is relative and not a specific end-goal. Think about how often you hear someone say, “I am perfecting yoga.” Doing one yoga posture one time does not mean you are practicing yoga. The practice comes from consistently performing certain actions over time. This time frame will naturally lend itself to subtle changes in your environment, distraction level, mood shifts, bodily changes, and any number of other factors, which influence the experience of practice as it happens.
