why I keep doing yoga

Have been thinking today about what keeps me coming back to yoga.  I’ve been a regular practitioner for many years and a teacher for six and I just never get bored.

Every movement, every breath can seem fresh and different when approached with an inquiring mind … being really in the moment (or to use the fashionable term ‘mindfully’).  Even the simplest of asanas can reveal something new whenever I practice them.  Meditation just takes me further and further yet brings me right back to me too.

I’m completely hooked!  Yoga is such an important part of my life that I  simply can’t imagine a life without yoga.  For me the slow, gentle style of traditional yoga rather than the often frenetic ‘posey’ gym style class is real yoga – yoga with heart and soul.

However busy I am, there’s always time for yoga – it may be just a few stretches and some breath work, or quiet contemplation, but it is an every day thing for me …and soemhow what makes life worth living.
