After 25 years of practicing yoga, I feel compelled to share what I’ve learned along the way with you. The physical practice has brought me strength, flexibility, and health; but the lessons I’ve learned, through facing and overcoming obstacles that once seemed so insurmountable, are much deeper than the physical.
Yoga is a way to stop the incessant runaway train of time. By focusing our attention on the breath, we bring ourselves fully into the body, and experience the bliss of the present moment. Through practice and repetition, we eventually learn to still the endless chatter of the mind. In this way, Yoga is a chance to take a well-deserved break from our outward-looking selves, and turn our attention and focus onto our inner selves.
