Creating Pockets of Mindfulness and Gladness through Yoga and Writing

Why Practice Yoga?

What is Yoga:

Yoga is the art of our aligning our consciousness to presence. The practice of communing with ourselves and aligning our body and mind to discover the meaning in our life. Yoga involves several disciplines that allows us to reality:
Yoga, meaning “yoke” or “union” of the mind, body, and spirit, was developed over 4,000 years ago as a spiritual practice. It was a way to deepen meditation and gain self-actualization, which is an understanding of one’s intrinsic wholeness and connectedness in the present moment. In the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali, recognized as the codifier of Yoga, defined Yoga as: “control of the thought waves of the mind” which implies that Yoga as a philosophy and lifestyle practice goes beyond the physical practice of asanas or postures.

There are several practices The Peace and Love Lifestyle uses to align actions with a balanced heart and mind. Every practice aims at aligning us to the tender, thoughtful, and wonder-smitten aspects of reality.

Benefits of each Peace and Love Yoga Style:

1. Hatha Yoga

The regular practice of Hatha Yoga enhances strength, flexibility, and balance and may offer some light to moderate aerobic conditioning as well, depending on the style practiced. Other benefits may be gained from incorporating breath work (pranayama) and meditation as part of, or in addition to, a Hatha Yoga practice.
A Hatha Yoga practice may be used by anyone as a way to increase fitness, improve health, attain or restore greater balance and connectedness of mind-body-spirit, and develop mental focus and discipline. With the help of a skilled teacher and credible resources, incorporating other Yoga techniques into a physical Hatha Yoga practice may open the door to attaining additional health benefits, enhanced stress management, and a more meaningful Hatha Yoga experience.
