Creating shifts through body movement.
A mindfulness practice that incorporates body movement, breath control, and self awareness, yoga supports the practitioner to feel connection and balance with their whole selves - mind, body, and spirit. Engaging the subtleties of a yoga practice helps us feel grounded, stable, relaxed, and compassionate towards ourselves and others.
I was six months into a twice weekly yoga practice when it happened. It was an extremely stressful day. As I sat at my desk I suddenly became aware of myself. I noticed myself following deep long breaths as they flooded in, the rolled out of, my body. I experienced my body soften, and my energy still. It was glorious. That was the first moment I knew I had found something amazing. Little did I know then how many of these moments were ahead of me.
Yoga is a practice.
A practice that is of the body, but transcends the body.
Yoga brings forward your capacity to heal
without uttering a word.
