Because a little inspiration goes a long way…
If you ever happen to find yourself in my yoga class, you’ll probably notice that I like to begin and end each practice with an inspiring quote. In fact, I like feel-good words so much so that I google them on the daily. I like ’em on Instagram. I post ’em on Facebook. I pin ’em on Pinterest. And I would totally tweet ’em on Twitter… if I was into that sort of thing. But you get the point — I love me some inspirational quotes. What can I say? Positive affirmation is just plain good for the soul.
Often times during yoga class, we’re so focused on the physical practice — the breathing, the squeezing, the holding, the hugging — that we forget about the mental aspect of it. Yoga is about so much more than just the physical. Yoga is about connecting the mind, body and soul through a series of poses that can be used as a gateway to dig deeper into our inner warriors and feeling beyond the postures themselves to bring more meaning and awareness to our lives both on, and off, the mat.
Don’t just take my word for it though. Check out what these famous yogis had to say about what their practice has taught them below.
