Life is a journey and there is a beautiful strength that comes from the Simplicity of Being, and when we remain humble and receptive life unfolds in a beautiful way.
I often get the question – why do you practice yoga?
Yoga is for me as life, a journey and a way to better health and well-being during the trip. I practice yoga and meditation regularly, ensuring that the practice will be safe and effective, to create a deeper understanding of balance, joy and stability. While I nourish my need for sweating, focus, discipline and determination during my Asthanga practice, I have discovered a way to nurture the more energetic and spiritual side of my nature through Yin yoga and meditation.
When practicing yoga in everyday life, the body becomes softer, the heart feels more open and I feel stronger and more motivated. I find peace through the strength of my yoga practice and I give room for change to happen.
Yoga is far more than physical exercises on the mat and there are many ways to apply what we learn about ourselves on the yoga mat, and transfer it into the everyday life.
Yoga challenges me both physically and in the mind, and is for me patience, concentration, exercise and again training. When I’m in yoga, I sometimes get a beautiful stillness even in motion. I feel more comfortable and it feels like the body I live in and my senses get better space. I am more conscious, awake and present in what is now and my ability to focus increases.
Yoga is a wonderful resource, yoga opens doors of understanding we might not even have known were closed. It offers us a way to leave behind, and return to our true selves, where healing takes place. Therefore, when embracing the practice with mindfulness and an open heart, I love to experience the effect, step by step.
The practice of yoga is like watching a tree grow, it will take years and in the early stages it needs care and attention. I know there is a long way to move, but as a human we have a large capacity stored in us and yoga helps us better understand that potential.
