While modern day yoga is perceived as a physical practice, the truth is that yoga is much more a science of the mind, than just the body.
To live life balanced and fulfilled takes focus and perseverance, and it also means being disciplined about taking time out to consciously feel good. It is only too easy to allow the past or certain circumstances in your life to influence the way you feel and act, allowing inertia and/or certain repetitive and unsupportive thought and behaviour patterns to set in.
To live well, means you need to take control of how you think, feel and act, so that can you can restore your vitality, and create a life path that feels more supportive and wholesome to you.
Through yoga asana we learn to bring energy and vitality into our bodies. With simple pranayama practices (breathing), we learn to focus and relax our minds, and this allows us the ability to reflect upon our inner selves. Inner reflection leads to greater self-awareness. From this, we learn to move towards clarity and wisdom, becoming powerful creators of a life that we want to live.
