What does that word conjure up for you?
For a lot of people, it will conjure up an image of a contorted body in some kind of unimaginable pose. Maybe for others, a cross-legged Buddha-like, serene figure.
Yogi’s are mindful; introspective; and definitely vegetarian. Right?
I don’t fit neatly into any of these models – and I’m guessing you don’t either.
The truth is: Yoga is more than a set of practised postures, deep breathing, or eating vegetarian food – though all of these may come into it.
Yoga is a way of life; a continual practise; a way of striving to be the best, most authentic you.
I practise the physical poses – or asana – of Yoga to strengthen my body; the breathing exercises to strengthen and calm my mind; and the philosophy to try to make sense of the world around me.
This blog is all about the simple, intentional way of living that I continue to seek through Yoga.
