WHAT YOGA HAS TAUGHT ME

 

 

I’m a loyal yoga fan.

 

This year though, I’ve stepped it up a gear.

 

Most days now, I do yoga in some sort. Whether thats a more fiery practice, or a few gentle twists, I have to make time for it.

 

How to appreciate my body

Yeah, yeah, cliche or what. But its true! I think learning to love yourself and your body especially, is one of the hardest things to do. But by doing yoga, and appreciating the fact that with regular practice I can do poses than I could never thought I would be able to do (not there with the handstands yet though guys), and seeing how much I’ve progressed feels so great. Feeling positive in your body is so under-rated and for me, radiates through to my entire life.

 

Stop the mental chatter

I’m not a person who struggles to give there self  down time. I know how important it is mentally. But even in that down time of yours, you can still hear your mind chattering away. With yoga, I am (most of the time) so focused on the act of moving, that the mental chatter slows down and gives the mind a well deserved break.

 

Theres no ‘end’

You don’t suddenly become a ‘yogi’. You don’t get bored. There’s no end to yoga. Its constantly a new beginning, a new day, a new attitude. Theres so many different versions to try, poses to try and master. I always love looking for inspiration on Instagram and LOVE ‘yoga girl’ and ‘jessica olie’.

 

I would love to know if you guys are yoga fans too?! Thanks for reading! xxxx

    I’ve been getting into yoga recently as one of my friends is really into it and asked me to come to classes with her. I also struggle with the “mental chatter” and it really does help to stop you focusing on it!

  • I have never been a yoga lover because I am more of a runner than slow pace fitness lover. However, I love the meditation part at the end of yoga classes, it really takes your head off things!
