Yoga is about creating space -
space to breath - to expand - to lengthen and to strengthen.
On the yoga mat we create space in our body by breathing — and by linking physical movement with the breath (vinyasa), yoga also creates space in our minds.
Moving with the breath, focusing on this only, there are moments in which the mind can't wander.
Yoga has the ability to create short, brief - p a u s e s - between one thought and another, to give your mind some space to rest. The space in your mind, which you create, also gives you an opportunity to be where life takes place - in the moment.
If you don't take care of your body, where are you going to live?
"But.. I'm not flexible enough, I can't even touch my toes", you might say.
Okay, listen to this:
Your yoga practice could care less if you can reach your toes or master a pincha mayurasana. Your practice asks for you to be present. It asks simply, that you show up.
To create space in your life for, well - YOU.
