Turn within and connect with self.
The quieter we become, the more we can hear. Each of us are probably seeking ‘yoga’ — union with our Higher Self, with Source, with the Universe or however we might call the Greater Power… Yoga opened its doors to me, showing me a path to myself. My practice is my ‘me time’, one of the ways I choose to enter an altered state of consciousness and know that I am connected to something greater. Yoga is Presence itself, allowing me to experience peace at the deepest level of my being, allowing me just to be.
Many people might think Yoga is the physical (asana) practice. Whilst it is an important part of the path, know that there’s so much more to uncover! Integrating other aspects such as meditation, pranayama (breathing techniques) have led me to experience greater understanding and acceptance of myself. Different aspects of yoga continue to be my teachers and inspire my life philosophies.
