Learning to move our bodies in this world is a process that is filled with obstacles. From the day we first lift our head and drop it back down, to our first steps followed by a fall, we experience all emotion yet are driven by the spirit to strive for more. We learn to walk, jump, squat, lunge, twist, push, pull, transfer our weight, run, sequence, coordinate, dance and play. Somewhere down the line we also learn bad habits, and begin to develop patterns that eventually leads us to poor posture, reduced mobility, and both physical and emotional pain.
Yoga helps us change those patterns. We begin to quiet the mind by concentrating and finding balance between stillness and movement, we discover that the strength gained by awareness, proprioception, breath control, and facing emotions cannot only be helpful to our state of being but also effecting others in a positive way. In my opinion, this is the true potential of Yoga.
I will challenge you to seek your potential and strive for greatness while asking you to first follow your breath and honour your body for balance is the root to progression and growth.
