The Best 5 Benefits of Doing Yoga
During my first 10 years of yoga, I resisted the idea of studying self-learning. I liked going to class and
having the energy of other people to support me. I felt that the collective efforts were significant and
were a motivating force that helped me move forward. In addition, I liked learning not only to learn, but
also to tell me what to do. There was something comforting in my thinking that I was not only
responsible for what was happening. For example, I could lie down, order and call during the day.
When I got pregnant, I was inspired to study the practice. I not only wanted to do restorative restorative
yoga, but I also did not want the rhythm of an energetic vinyasa class. So I decided it was time to start
practicing yoga yourself. I had the experience of the last decade to guide me, and I felt I was ready to
take this step. It was 4 years ago, and to this day most of my yoga is self-realization. I’m still going to
class, but I do not feel the same sense of dependence, and I use it more as a tool of inspiration, not as a
crutch to make me move.
Here are five reasons why I believe that every yogi should include his practice.
1) It is an opportunity to listen to your body in a profound way
When he is in class he must follow the agenda that the teacher choreographed. Although there is
intentionality in what you do, it does not mean that the practice has been fulfilled for you, your body
and where you are on this day. During the self-study you have the opportunity to really [! Divide!]] Listen to your body and what it wants.
2) This is the best way to connect with your breathing, stimulation and internal rhythms
I do not know about you, but when I’m in the classroom and the teacher says, “Breathe,” it’s hard for me
not to influence what is happening around me. If someone moves faster or slower, or the teacher moves
to the next posture, I tend to sacrifice my own time for the rhythm of the class. But in my own practice, I
can really move with my own breath. I can spend my time or accelerate the process, but the rhythm is
related to my internal rhythm for this day, and I do not make commitments, because I only have my own
heart to listen to.
3) It helps you to resist your fears
There are many positions that I am less than loved: a united lateral corner, hanamanuasana [! This!]],
Dove, to name a few. And although I could always avoid these poses in my self-realization, if I wanted
to, instead I always approach them. Maybe I do not know much, but I know that if it causes me a mental
problem, it’s probably a good place. And thanks to this desire to resist these postures, which caused me
anxiety in the past, they became my friends. I learn from them, and the more I visit them, the more kind
they are to me.
4) Awaken creativity
Inventing your own vinyas flow causes a creative approach. You must think about what moves the
sequences in the next and create a method that is as rational as it is fluid. I like this process, and I often
wonder what I came up with. I understand the connective tissue between one posture and the next,
revealing many ways. I have the opportunity to paint an image of my practice and paint it with the
position of my imagination.
5) He reminds you of a guru inside
I learned a lot from the masters in my past and I continue to study with very wise yogis. However, at the
same time, my self-control reminds me of the eternal wisdom of my soul. Like everyone else, I have a
guru inside me and, through the silence of my moments of solitude, I can listen to what she says.
