Yoga literally means “union” or “to yoke” our everyday selves with our highest most divine selves. Yoga is a powerful tool that teaches us how to live a life of balance, peace, harmony, strength and flexibility on all levels. The practice of yoga helps us become stronger, more open, free, happy, flexible and balanced, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Through yoga, we open ourselves to the infinite possibilities of life, allowing us to connect more deeply with ourselves, nature and community.
A Disciplined Practice of yoga has the transformational benefits of deepening our connection to the body, mind and spirit, supporting us in living and loving long, vibrant, happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.Yoga teaches us the art of letting go, letting grow, letting flow. We move our bodies to move energy and restlessness to ultimately still the mind and enter the bliss of meditation, wherein our individual consciousness can merge with the ultimate or spiritual oneness consciousness, leading to our remembrance that we are not separate from that which appears to be outside of our own minds.
In practicing yoga, we become humbled and trusting in the body of wisdom that is sacred and vast and greater than our individual selves, looking at the reflections life shows us in the form of experiences, people we come cross, emotions that enter. We practice the art of receiving, giving, striving for an open heart even especially when it wants to close, believing the seemingly impossible to be possible and embracing feelings of gratitude for the perfection of it all either way
From wherever we are at, where ever our own personal edges are, breaking through our conceptions of comfort and of who we think we are, and having the biggest openings is another great benefit of practicing yoga. Becoming more conscious, more mindful, in the choices we make everyday, from diet and lifestyle to the company we keep, so that we are living in full truth, love and integrity, is another great benefit of practicing yoga. Yoga helps inspire a deeper connection with mother nature and her cycles. To feel connections and allow synchronicities is such a delightful fruit of this practice. It is after all and most importantly, a practice!
