Benefits of a Consistent Yoga Practice - Part 2

Benifits of yoga

In this part 2 in a series we continue to explore the benefits of yoga with a consistent practice.

1. Mindfulness
Think of the asanas (the postures) and the breath as a dance. We link the asana to the breath and flow in and out of the postures to the rhythm of the breath. As we practice, the breath always remains and the asanas change. As you practice a more vigorous or challenging asana the quality of the breath may change. It's then, that in being mindful we can choose to modify or intensify a pose. Staying with the breath and relaxing into the poses is how we cultivate mindfulness and inner peace.

2. Awareness
Yoga is a powerful mindful practice. Inviting us with every breath and every movement to be in the present moment, to enjoy being in the 'now'. By being fully present, there is no need to worry or think about the past or the future. We are able then to bring awareness to the thoughts arising, notice them and let them go. By staying aware and present in your practice you will begin to feel peaceful, balanced calm and energized.

3. Gratitude
Cultivating mindfulness and practicing awareness helps to bring about feelings of gratitude. By accepting where you are at the present moment, appreciating the gifts in your life, you are creating more abundance and blessings. Being grateful and realizing the gifts in your life will make you feel content and fill your heart with compassion and appreciation.

4. Happiness
Yoga teaches us to be ourselves, knowing that we are accepted for who we are. We are safe to go deep, and release stored emotions that may arise to the surface. We have the ability to let go of what does not serve us and make space for new experiences. Even when the asanas are challenging, we come back to the breath, observe with the minds eye, soften in and return to the simplicity of the practice.

These are just a few of the many wonderful benefits of this practice. A consistent practice has been proven to to help develop insight, awareness, stillness and happiness.
