Yoga, Yogilife, Ayurveda & Meditation
Yoga is more than the asanas, poses, we practice on the mat. Yoga is a practice, it is also lifestyle on and off the mat.
"Through the practice of postures we release pent up tensions that have accumulated in our body, and we further refine our physical senses so that we become sensitive, adaptive and resilient. We reacquaint ourselves with the cyclic nature of our breath and its relationship to the sensate wisdom of our body. We learn to inhale completely and open to new experience. We learn to exhale complete and let go of unnecessary tension and the past." (Bringing Yoga to Life, Donna Farhi).
There are Eight (8) Limbs of Yoga, the Asanas are only one limb, Pranayama, breath work, is another, and meditation another. I discuss more of this during practices and on my social media pages (Facebook-HeartfulYouYoga/BeYogaFull, and Instagram & Youtube - BeYogaFull, separate website coming soon).
