I used to think of yoga as a great way to stretch, tone and become more flexible. This was before I got into yoga. Yoga is not only a physical exercise, but a practice dedicated to a spiritual and mental connection. Often the busy world we live in today does not give us the chance to make this connection, which is essential to our happiness and wellbeing. The mind, the body and the soul are closely interlinked. Yoga helps train all of these – the poses makes the body strong and toned and concentrating on the breathing techniques helps keep the mind present and focused. There is so much to learn from yoga, however the best part for me is that after each practise I learn more about myself.
