Yoga has numerous benefits that extend themselves into your everyday life, past the walls of a studio. Dedicated yogis know that yoga becomes a lifestyle through 5 major points: proper exercise, proper breathing, proper relaxation, proper diet, and positive thinking and meditation.
With proper exercise, you improve your flexibility, strength, and circulation. Yoga not only works out your body, but it also strengthens your mentality and spirituality.
Through proper breathing you take full breaths that open up your mind and revitalize you. Many people take only shallow breaths, which leads to bad posture, tension throughout the body, and lack of oxygen. Deep breathing releases prana, a subtle energy which, when controlled, can in turn help you control your mind.
Proper relaxation flushes out all of the built up stress from day to day routines so you feel renewed and at peace. There are hundreds of distractions in the everyday world that make it hard for us to really relax, which drains your energy over time. Putting aside time to physically, mentally, and spiritually relax will allow for inner peace to flourish.
The food you eat is incredibly important to how you function. A proper diet, consisting of quality proteins, complex carbs, and healthy fats from mostly non-refined and vegetarian sources nourishes your body so you feel better every day. These foods are easy to digest and contain energy directly from the sun, so you are getting the highest quality nutrition available.
Finally, positive thinking and meditation come together to help you become joyful and aware. Being able to focus and control your mind is an incredibly powerful tool, but it takes regular meditation to get to that point. When you finally do, you find that your mind is stronger and calmer.
All five points bring wellness, peace, and balance to your body and mind so you can live each day feeling more in touch with yourself and the world around you.
