I discovered Yoga already a while ago as a very beneficial tool for bringing your Body and Mind in total Balance.
Though before that time I always thought Yoga was a bit boring to practice and lots of exercises and positions hard to do.
But once I started to try it out, also because it goes very well in combination with Meditation I experienced it was not so bad at all!
When you start with Yoga you are of course not be able to do the Acrobatic positions straight away, and to be honest, I’m still not there yet, still not experienced enough to do them ;-).
Starting off with the Basic positions is already great to Feel and recognize the difference for your Body and Mind.
For me, the best time of the day to practice Yoga is early Morning. It gives you Such a high amount of Energy afterwards what will support you through the day.
Yoga is for me also a kind of Meditation on its own as you focus on the exercises, positions and your breathing which automatically helps to relax and ease the Mind.
Many people still think that Yoga ( with just the basic positions) won’t improve your Body in a muscular way like with a lot of other sports. But actually it does!
The whole combination of your Breathing and the Exercises helps to remove toxins from your Body. And when toxins are being removed from your Body it benefits not only your Health but also contributes with Weight loss. It’s also a very good exercise to get rid of Cellulite! Also again because of getting rid of the toxins in your Body.
When you feel stressed or have a lot of things on your Mind it’s a great solution to use Yoga, and even better in combination with Meditation, to calm your Mind. When your Mind is on ease without tension and worries you will feel Physically much better as well. As you might know, stress and worries really drains your Energy what of course has a huge effect on your Body.
Important also is to drink a glass of light warm water before you start with Yoga and drink much water afterwards through the day, also to keep working on removing those toxins.
When you for example practice Yoga early morning and do a Meditation before you go to bed you keep your Body and Mind in perfect Balance. The Yoga is a great start of the Day as it provides you enough Energy throughout the Day and help you start the Day with a Fresh, Clear Mind and the Meditation at Night will help you to clear out your Mind from everything through the Day again so you can prepare for a good night sleep ( without having all these thoughts and stress still running through your mind which can cause a restless night or even insomnia ).
So when you are looking for more Balance and Peace in your Body and Mind, Yoga and Meditation are very Powerful and Beneficial.
Have fun! :-)
