How to Take Yoga into Your Life

Have you ever wondered how holding yoga poses like Tree, Warrior, or Mountain can make your day better?

One day I will arrive at that perceived destination and say, oh look! I’m here, wasn’t that a fun trip! Where else can I go?

Is it Yoga, Asana or a workout?

 

I woke up this morning feeling inspired while also feeling something brewing within me to share.  As I quickly perused my two social media news feeds, I realized what I needed to share from my heart.  First let me briefly explain what I noticed this morning;  Pictures of extremely difficult asana poses, ads for upcoming Yoga “challenges” and Yoga “shred” events.

Before getting ahead of myself, and for those who do not know, I would like to explain the difference between Yoga and Asana. Continue reading “Is it Yoga, Asana or a workout?”
