In our world today, there are a million different ways to get your daily workout in. From Fitness Centers, to personal trainers, cutting edge equipment shipped right to your home and even streaming Fitness TV channels. If you want to skip the workout all together there are a plethora of quick weight loss programs including meal plans and beverages with promises ranging from a better body to a clearer mind. Your options are seemingly unlimited in this day and age.
So the burning question still remains, with all the options out there, why Practice Yoga? One of the bests answers that we can think of is.....No one owns Yoga, it's for everyone, for all shapes and sizes, for all levels of athletic pursuit.
The best thing of all is that Yoga is a GIFT to the world passed down through thousands of years of keen observation of the physical world and a close connection of those observers with the spiritual world. When you practice yoga, you are not only working and toning the physical body but you are training the mind to be still and intuitive.
Our minds are so busy in this modern world that we lose our connection with ourselves, each other and the planet. Yoga yokes us back into the body using various poses and the breath, calming our speeding minds and inviting the mind back home into our bodies. Once this is achieved we can think more clearly and be connected once again.
So now you ask, "well which type of Yoga should I practice?" Well, test out various styles and instructors and choose a style that feels good for you. Whether it's Bikram Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Hot Yoga, Yin Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Power Yoga, Restorative Yoga or Flow Yoga.... Like we said earlier, no one owns Yoga, so make it your own. Even if you want to try a few poses everyday at home, you are still practicing, toning, connecting and clearing the mind.
