Yoga: what it is, and how it can help you.

What is Yoga?

Yoga is a series of ancient practises rooted on strengthening the mind, body, and spirit connection. There are many schools of yoga, and each has different focus points. My goal today is to share with you a few routines I do every day! I believe that sharing good things makes us better people; and since yoga is one of the things I do daily, I really want you to experience it. The reason is it makes me more aware, sharpens my mind and helps me get ready for day-to-day life. Knowing that yoga can help you so much, I invite you to try it!

This video will show you the routine I do as warm-up. Wear something comfortable, because you’ll be moving a lot! Once you’ve finished doing this small yoga routine, I invite you to relax and let your body get to know its new heightened state; since the result of the connecting process that is Yoga is best appreciated right after the exercise. You will find just how much yoga can help you!

I strongly recommend doing yoga every morning, since it can give you energy to last the entire day, as well as prevent and heal things like scoliosis pain, sore muscles, numbness, etc. The benefits are many, and you won’t regret it.

So what is the best way to practise yoga?

First of all, try finding a calm area, whether indoors or outdoors, where you won’t be bothered by sudden noises, distractions and worries. Most people like to accompany their routine with the smell of a stick of incense, natural flowers, or perfumes. For starters, a simple yoga mat is great, although some swear by exercise mattresses or eva foam carpeting. Here, you will be able to choose as you experience more options!

If you’re not very flexible, you can start with a routine that encourages you to go as far as you can without pushing your limits too much. It is important to do yoga figures with calm and a controlled breathing. Usually, the yoga instructor will teach you the breathing technique as you go.

Remember, don’t use strength, use your breathing! If you find a pose too difficult, it is alright to switch to an easier version. Mastery comes with time and discipline, and those are virtues yoga can help you build.
