There are many reasons people come to yoga. Often we’re looking to slim down, tone up, master challenging pretzel shapes, and other physical aspects of the practice. While this is a by-product of practice, there is so much more available if you’re willing to look deeper.
Yoga is not an action, it’s an experience. In other words, it’s not something you do, it’s something you feel. Yoga is a sensation of connectedness or union that naturally arises when we actively pay attention, on purpose, without judgement.
So why do yoga?
Because through the practice, you can unlearn the deep rooted fears that hold you back, and relearn how to trust yourself through the process. Yoga instills the healing habit of creating sacred space for you to question your fear-filled thoughts and see through your ever-changing emotions to the clarity underneath all the noise. When we do so repeatedly, we experience less stress, more peace, and overflowing love.
Though it may be a lifelong, daily commitment, it’s one you won’t regret.
