The Magic of Yoga

I am so lucky to be a yoga teacher!

Why?   Because of the difference I seem to make to the lives of so many of my students.  This week at least half a dozen people have commented on the beneficial effect their yoga practice is having on their lives … using powerful language such as “yoga has changed my life” or has been a “life saver”.

And they are right ….. yoga is wonderful!  The word ‘yoga’ means union and refers to the union of mind, body and spirit – hence the overall wellbeing effect yoga can bring.  It always saddens me when I see yoga referred to just exercise – fitness yoga for example, as it shows a real lack of understanding of the true meaning and magic of yoga.

Yes, on a physical level yoga can help you gain strength and flexibility, improve posture and balance, reduce back, neck and shoulder pain.  But there is so much more.  Yoga can do wonders for stress management, confidence, and positivity. And increase feelings of ‘connectedness’ and wholeness.

So a big thank you to all my students for the wonderful feedback you give me.  I really appreciate it and will continue to work hard to share with you the magic of yoga.
