yoga | from busy to calm
Do you use your busy schedule as an excuse to skip a workout? Do you feel you are just too busy and don’t have the time to move/exercise? Well, when it comes to yoga, the busier you are, the more important it is that you make time to fit it into your schedule! And as they say: where there’s a will, there is most definitely a way. No matter what your days look like, you can always carve out a little slice of time for yourself to exercise.
Yoga is a practice that everyone should try, and if you have busy, stressful day-to-day life, yoga can really help you manage your stress while working on your flexibility and getting you in shape. And although skipping out on a yoga practice can free up much needed time, it is often during these times of busy-ness that we need our practice the most. Sometimes, the secret to fulfilling the many responsibilities of life, is in stopping long enough to breathe.
Yoga class is an opportunity to put yourself first and make time for you. With yoga incorporated into your daily life you’ll find that you feel more grounded and in tune with yourself. And while there are many physical benefits to practicing yoga, the mental benefits make it all worth your time.
Now, despite what you might see on Instagram, Yoga is not just a practice of poses, stretches and hyper-flexibility. Yoga is a philosophy, with the word itself essentially meaning ‘union’ and ‘that which brings you to reality’, and practicing yoga is all about finding the balance within the self and bringing everything to reality.
Yoga is a powerful tool for finding peace and gratitude within. It enables us to move beyond the daily grind of our fast-paced lives, to achieve patience, love, and mindfulness. Although it may start on the yoga mat through breathing and postures, but the ripples of yoga go far beyond. And as you leave the mat in class, you are able to bring that calm energy and mindfulness to all of your daily tasks and interactions, perhaps even inspiring those around you to do the same… Sort of a domino effect if you will 🙂
Many people get into yoga out of mere curiosity, but as you can see from the above, there are many other reasons why yoga is good for you, and we would love to have you explore Yoga with us!
See you on the mat!
