Life is too short to waste a single moment being in a hate-state with your body

If you have a regular yoga practice you know that life is a balance of holding on and letting go. While you’re likely to find that your time on the mat is transformational, it’s really what happens off the mat that will be a life changer.

#3 A holistic medicine, yoga can shape and harmonize your daily life

#4 Set goals so you can achieve your wildest dreams

Yoga teaches that what you’re looking for is not out there, it’s inside of you. Set goals and aim high. Forget all the reasons something won’t work and believe the only reason it will. Step out of your comfort zone and stop being so damn cautious. The voice inside your head that says you can’t do something is a liar. You’re only given one life, be inspired to live every day to the fullest.

#5 While you can’t always control what comes your way, you can control how you react to it

Everyone experiences life’s obstacles and it’s easy to let the daily grind bring you down. Yoga gives you greater clarity and helps you maintain your composure through the ups and downs of the day. A serene mindset will help you let go when faced with confrontations and uncomfortable situations. You will discover how to handle the stresses of the day with greater ease. Preparing you to go from 110mph to Zen.

#6 Living in a world consumed by chaos, life’s daily struggles can leave you feeling overwhelmed and paralyzed

Yoga is not about working out. It’s about shifting from days full of to-do lists, to one in which you create a more well-rounded lifestyle. A regular yoga practice intensifies happiness. Your level of enjoyment deepens because of the chemical reactions in your body. Yoga triggers the release of the essential hormone oxytocin, which floods your body with feelings of satisfaction and well-being.

#7 Recognize your worth and limitless potential, fall madly in love with who you already are

While we all easily embrace our strengths, it’s harder to accept our weaknesses. Be gentle with yourself and know that you are enough. Yoga can help you stand proud and is a natural confidence booster.

Allow yoga to guide you on your journey. You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress at the same time.
