Nothing beats the feeling after finishing a yoga class; I feel calmer, more grounded, lighter. My favorite class is vinyasa – a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together, whereby we move from one posture to another using our breath. It is commonly referred to as “flow” yoga.
As I’m flowing and focusing from 1 posture to another, my mind quiets down. Finally the constant chatter stop and I can feel at peace. Only when I’m in peace, I can be the best version of myself. If I do yoga in the morning, I feel better throughout the day – more focused & productive at work and mindful of other people.
I used to think that I’m a good multitasker – doing many things at the same time. This has been proven wrong by science (as apparently nobody can multitask, not even women – that’s not how our brain works) and experience. What I was doing was jumping back and forth between tasks and it was counter productive.
In the vinyasa classes, I’ve no choice but to focus on 1 posture at a time (or I will lose my balance & hurt myself). This has taught me to find my focus, to find the flow in my life.
