Yoga is not just about mastering downward dog and wearing tight Lululemon gear. Yoga benefits go far beyond anything I’ve ever imagined.
Besides improving flexibility and strength, yoga is medicine for the soul.
During yoga, we are present.
We are encouraged to connect with our body and be aware.
As people integrate yoga and meditation into their daily life, they often stop searching outward for satisfaction.
When we deepen our practice, we radiate beautiful energy to the outside world.
And when we are fulfilled, we attract more great things into our life.
On the other hand, when we feel unhappy and disappointed (vibrating at a low energetic frequency), it’s hard to attract anything positive.
Yoga benefits go beyond just increasing flexibility.
Top 3 Benefits of Yoga
1. YOGA CONNECTS US
In our modern, fast-paced world, we are ultra-connected and at the same time, ultra-disconnected.
Sure we can easily stay in touch via text or social media, but we don’t engage in deep, meaningful conversations through modern communication techniques.
In yoga, we learn to slow down, breathe, and connect.
By connecting with ourselves, we connect better with others.
2. THE MORE LOVE WE GIVE OURSELVES, THE MORE WE HAVE TO GIVE OTHERS
Yoga is a very non-judgmental, loving, and nurturing practice.
If we’re exhausted, feeling drained, or depleted, how can we possibly give to others?
To be a good parent, a good worker, and a good partner, we need to give to ourselves first and yoga is an excellent way to fill our own cup.
3. IT HELPS US LET GO OF TOXINS
Yoga is like guided meditation.
It helps us let go of the past and focus on the present. It helps us feel lighter, calmer, and clearer.
Releasing toxicity from our past will help clear out the old and make space for the new.
I like what you said about yoga helping us let go of the past and focus on the present. Yoga classes offer spiritual benefits in addition to the obvious physical ones. My fiancee and I want to join a yoga class, so we’ll do some research to find the best option for us.
That’s so great to hear Sam! Keep me updated and let me know how it goes.
