The Importance of Yoga Practice

The Importance of Yoga Practice
Yoga poses have been developed over centuries of research and experience.

The practice of yoga is highly effective for detoxifying our body, mind and soul. On a physical level, it aids the lymphatic system as it moves the energy throughout the body and gets the lymph pumping to all avenues of elimination. Yoga, combined with healing salt baths and other supporting detoxification treatments, helps move toxins.

Yoga allows us to be in a “witness state,” accessing our emotions more deeply and enabling us to let go and let flow.

Old or suppressed emotions can rise to the surface more easily without all the coverings of daily life.

Yoga also enhances our prana or life force allowing the body’s natural intelligence to direct the flow of energy toward healing rather than our own mind recommending various postures.

The flow of yoga naturally brings us into a clear and quiet mind as we enter meditation.

Embracing the ancient wisdoms and living a dharma lifestyle, which includes the asanas, sufficient sleep, spending

More time with nature and creating sacred space for yourself and your loved ones, promotes a happy, vibrant life.

Living in harmony brings us closer to Spirit.

Yoga takes you into the present moment, the only place where life exists.

Focused mind, Yoga helps you control the flow of information and reflect on what is really important.

Yoga is a great stress reliever and helps reduce anxiety. I suffer from anxiety and I guarantee everyone stresses out from time to time. I notice that I feel calmer, more composed and happier when I do yoga regularly.
