Yoga to improve the quality of your life
if its not, it isnt really yoga
The title to this article might sound a little pretentious, but think about it, its true ! Take the true meaning of the word YOGA, "to yoke, to join" . This is the intention of Yoga practice, to centre, to ground, to gather, to join in perfect harmony, our mind, body and soul. The approach to our "on the mat " practice, needs to be holistic and authentic. Once we've made a conscious decision, to practice Yoga, we are on this Yogic path. There is no "arriving" at a destination. It is something we will "do" for the rest of our lives. In walking gently, with discipline and focus, we automatically lead by example. The most important decision you will ever make, is to take the first step, step onto your mat, stand, breathe and experience ! As you step off your mat, make a promise to return as soon as possible, KNOW that your journey has begun. KNOW that each visit to your mat is only going to re-enforce your discipline, strength and flexibility. All of this, as well as a new found sense of self control and peace ? Why is the whole world not doing this, you may well ask ?! If this site manages to get just one person a day, tantalised and interested in starting this yogic safari (Swahili for journey), I will have achieved my goals. If everybody was practicing Meditation by the age of 8, it would automatically lead to world peace. Yoga practice and meditation WILL keep your physical body, your mind and your soul in perfect balance, leading to a healthier, happier, less emotionally turbulent life.

Ahimsa be upon you
