So, in the spirit of National Yoga Month, I have a question for you.
What do you do on a fairly regular basis that keeps you happy and healthy?
Take a minute to think about it. Maybe write it down.
If you came up with an answer, then that's yoga! Yes, seriously - you don't have to stand on your head to do yoga. What's more important is that you are doing something, anything, that makes you feel happier, healthier and more alive. It can also be something that takes you in the direction of who you want to be and where you want to go.
Here are some examples. My brother Ben doesn't do yoga - he rides motorcycles. But it is clearly his yoga. My Dad doesn't do yoga, but he makes wooden cutting boards, spoons and boxes. It's obviously his yoga. For both Ben and my Dad, these hobbies clearly nurture their souls...you can tell by the way they light up when they talk about it, and how much time and energy they put into it.
I am currently taking a business marketing course. Right now, it is my yoga because it is challenging me and helping me become who I want to be. That is also yoga.
So you see, yoga is all about your connection to your authentic self, which is happy and has a desire to create, contribute, learn and grow.
With that as a working definition, most people are already doing some yoga in their own unique way.
So congratulations on your yoga practice!! Keep it up. All of your friends and family thank you for nurturing your joy and for the energy you've put into your personal growth. They love having the best version of you in their lives!
If you don't have a yoga practice and you want one...I would be happy to help you find the spark that lights your fire with an Energy Coaching Session.
If you do have a practice that nurtures your soul, but you are looking for something that specifically nurtures your body, then I would love to help you with that. As always, I offer private sessions, workshops and classes. This month I'm offering a free therapeutic yoga workshop:
"How to Feel Better In Your Body:
A Unique Approach to Everyday Aches & Pains"
