It is true that doing yoga keeps the body flexible and strong, grounded and mobile. But the true benefit of yoga is much bigger than that. On the mat, we practice yoga in relationship to the physical body, but the same principles of awareness follow us home and into our lives. In this way, yoga can improve one’s quality of life and psychological well-being.
Practicing yoga is about managing balance in one’s life. It’s not about standing on your head so much as it is about standing on your own two feet. It is about balancing inner strength with resilience so that we can ride the waves of life with as much grace as possible. The philosophy of yoga is based on universal ethics such as kindness, honesty, gratitude, personal effort, and humility. It guides our awareness inward to acknowledge those values in ourselves; then it turns us outward to practice those ethics in our connections with others.
“Yoga gives me strength and levity to face the challenges of life and it helps me be the best person I can be.” – Lynne McNett, Yoga Instructor
