What Yoga Has Taught Me

December 16, 2015

In my fitness journey, I have learned the days when you don't want to work out - you should. The same holds true for yoga: the days I'd rather stay in bed a little longer are the days when I need yoga even more. For me, it's more than just a challenging workout. I've learned things about myself and the world around me since I started practicing and I continue to be amazed by the positive effect it all has on me.

There are so many benefits of yoga (see my top 5 here) but I've discovered so many more ways yoga has helped me, beyond the physical:

-I am more calm and relaxed
-I know that I can get through anything
-I am stronger mentally than I have ever been
-I reflect on what I am thankful for on a daily basis
-I see the world (and people) in a better light
-I am more patient
-I am slowing down and enjoying life, one day at a time
-I focus on the good in situations
-I am more alive

And most importantly: I'm still learning. Namaste.
