BENEFITS OF A REGULAR YOGA PRACTICE
Yoga has been for existing for decades, but truth is that yoga now a days has been loosing a bit of its real meaning. Yoga, which means "union" of the mind, spirit and body, is not only about " physical postures" but about mindful coordination between movements, breathing, concentration. The beauty of it can be achieved in very simple ways, just being always mindful about your practice, and being totally aware of each movement, each inhalation and exhalation and each thoughts your mind is willing to take.
Yoga can be practiced on the mat, but as well every minute of your day: at work, at home with your family, with friends, with nature, and with yourself. The basics of yoga is to be present, observing your emotions & your body and trying to accept it, without comparing yourself to others in any way, and just letting flow what comes to you. Obstacles can come to you, within your practice which can be pain, tensions, or difficulty holding one posture: this is a signal that your body is trying to send you. At the end of the day, our body is the reflection of our emotion and our thoughts. Our body is just a tool, who is reproducing exactly what our mind & emotions is saying. So trying to breath, focus, move a little, and just being present is the key to reach a deeper point of wellbeing and inner peace.
