Why I am doing yoga?

Most of us have experienced stress at time management. I used to explore ways to improve my time management until it hits a ceiling. There is 24 hours every day and too many things to get done. I find the solution from another perspective, instead of managing my time, I manage my energy to complete and achieve targets more effectively.

Just a few minutes of yoga every day will provide much needed energy boost in our busy lives and will keep us fresh for longer. Yoga, with its unique synergy of body and breath work, is perfect when your reserves are running low.

Daily yoga practice will awaken the main energy centres (called chakras) in our body. Great poses for extra energy are those that extend the spine, such as the tree pose, allowing energy to circulate throughout the whole body, and poses that open the chest, like the cobra pose, encouraging the intake of more breath.

Moreover, practicing yoga will shift our awareness to the sensations, thoughts, and emotions that accompany a given pose. That awareness will bring the mind back to the present moment – the main aim of mindfulness – where it can stay happy and focused.

By practicing yoga, I have experienced higher levels of energy and enthusiasm and more self-confidence and self-acceptance.
