What I’ve learned from skipping yoga and having a break from it to focus on gym training with dance:
1. Yoga is my mental prep time for the day.
We never know what each new day is going to bring. Beginning the day in quiet, calm reflection as I stretch, balance, and breathe helps me feel more centered, peaceful, and better able to handle whatever comes my way.
2. Yoga brings me back to my body
Both during and after my practice, I feel healthier, stronger, and more in tune with my body.
This leads to me making better choices for myself throughout the day—whether it's opting for healthier meals, having more patience, and practicing kindness toward others, or remembering to relax, breathe, and rest when I need it.
3. Yoga gives me a better night’s sleep.
Sleep is one of the most important ways we can take care of ourselves; yet, most of us are chronically under-sleeping, and/or have trouble falling asleep at night.
On my yoga days, I have a much smoother, easier time settling in to relax and unwind in the evenings, even after a really tough day. Having my mind and body both at ease usually leads to a very much welcome good night’s sleep
4. Yoga reminds me to be grateful
Things around us are constantly changing. In the ebb and flow of life, some days are boring, some are wonderful and beautiful, and some days are difficult and just plain rough. Yoga is one of the things that help carry me through, regardless of what the day brings, with gratitude and grace.
And this is why I just keep coming back (taken from “Doyouyoga” online)💟
I also love the gym, love sweating and burning away stress. Yoga and gym combined are just an awesome experience!
