Yoga is life, life is yoga.
This is something I say all the time. I say this because the practice of yoga reveals many lessons, on the mat. These same lessons are applicable off the mat. That is what makes yoga so accessible to everyone. Many people have the impression that you need to come to a yoga class already flexible or already calm or already strong. This could not be further from the truth. The best way to come to a yoga class is willing to learn. It’s not so much about what limitations you may have, it’s more about how you will grow what you will learn along the way, while growing. Henceforth the lessons that will be revealed on the mat. Another thing I say frequently is be flexible on and off the mat. One thing I have learned is that physical and mental flexibility work together. To test this theory think about yourself and/or people you know. Notice if their mental and physical flexibility are in synch. If you have not yet had the opportunity to experience yoga, I encourage you to give it a try! Remember be wary of pressuring yourself to be a certain way. Just give it a try and be open to seeing what lessons you may learn along the way.
