Why yoga?


What are the benefits of Yoga? To be honest I would not even attempt to try and list all the good things about yoga. Do not get me wrong that I do not want to but it is having the time and the fear of going down with an aching wrist that holds me back. Nonetheless further down I have pieced together a list of some important benefits of yoga for adults the elderly and kids too.

If you know your body is not 100% healthy and would like it to be, and you know deep down that it Is crying out for change, and needs yoga, then what are you waiting for…go and join a yoga class today and reward your body with the benefits it deserves

It is sad to see people losing out all because they are oblivious to the full extent of the healthy benefits that can be achieved from doing yoga. Why some people with ailing bodies that know about yoga but choose not to take it seriously, is beyond me, when yoga exercises can work wonders easing aches and pains, if not ridding them altogether. Should those oblivious people know how yoga helps the mind and body as much as it does they would be queuing up at the door to take up this widely popular worldwide fitness routine?

Why deny yourself having a pain free body and peace of mind. Doing specific yoga exercises may help rid any discomforts that could be stopping you from enjoying life to the full.

Please find some inspirational quotes :

Anyone who practices can obtain success in yoga but not one who is lazy.  Constant practice alone is the secret of success. (Hatha Yoga Pradipika)

The body is your temple. Keep it pure and clean for the soul to reside in. (B.K.S Iyengar)

Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and indifference toward the wicked. (The yoga sutras of Patanjali)

When the breath wanders the mind also is unsteady.  But when the breath is calmed the mind too will be still, and the yogi achieves long life. Therefore, one should learn to control the breath. (Hatha Yoga Pradipika)

Yoga exists in the world because everything is linked (Desikashar)

Do your practice and all is coming (Sri K Patthabi Jois)

Before you’ve practiced, the theory is useless.  After you’ve practiced, the theory is obvious. (David Williams,  Ashtanga teacher)

This calm steadiness of the senses is called yoga. Then one should become watchful, becomes yoga comes and go. (Katha Upanishad)

You can Change your life already today.
