Yoga is a life journey
“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” –The Bhagavad Gita
The above quote is how I perceive yoga. Many people practice yoga without even realizing it. Yoga can be practised by everyone regardless of age and body type. There is no need to be flexible, strong, or young to practice yoga. All we need is an open mind and an open heart to learn – the beginning of the yoga journey.
Yoga is about a lifestyle and is a way of life. As I deepen my understanding of the yoga teachings, I am amazed at yoga touches all aspects of how I live my life. Yoga is about achieving a balance and harmony between the mind, body, and spirit, both individually and in relationship with the world around us. It is also important to bring awareness to every part of your physical and spiritual being, allowing you to feel truly alive of the present moment.
To me, yoga is a lifelong journey to learn about myself and it will always be a part of me.
