What is yoga?
Yoga means union.
This means as much a state of consciousness as a physical, meditative and ethical practice. Yoga is the art of being alive, conscious, learning to be here and now.
Vinyasa yoga is a way of practicing hatha yoga (physical yoga practice). Vinyasa yoga means focusing on synchronizing the breath with the movement for the energy to flow freely within the body. It focuses on building outer and inner balance, along with strength and flexibililty.
If you have a body, you can practice yoga!
Getting rid of a few common myths
If you’re a beginner, let’s start by getting rid of a few common myths.
- There is no such thing as not being flexible enough for yoga.
- Yoga isn’t a religion. You don’t have to convert to hinduism to learn yoga.
- Practicing yoga doesn’t necessarily mean you have to change diet or your way of life.
- It’s not just about relaxing. The practice can be very dynamic and will help you strengthen your body in depth.
When it comes to yoga, the best way is always to join a class and see for yourself.
What can yoga bring me?
Yoga brings a lot of benefits. Physically speaking, it strengthens the body, increases flexibility, improves alignment and brings movement fluidity. It also heals the body’s inner systems (immunity, digestive, endocrine, etc) to improve our global health.
We can use a vinyasa practice to treat and heal the physical body, but its effects can also be seen beyond that. The practice will help you stabilize and clear the mind, increase your energy levels, and bring a nice sensation of inner peace. Cultivating inner calm is key to facing the challenges brought by our modern way of life.
