Motivating Factor!

November 19, 2019

Yoga is a practice of self care, when practiced with consistency can result in real change, even a transformation in your life. The reasons students take time out of their busy days to throw down a yoga mat to practice are varied.

During one of my classes, I asked the question, “Why are you here?” I then asked, “Why is that important to you?”

The answers to the first question was a list of the many benefits of yoga: stress relief, flexibility, strength, balance, etc. However, the answer to the second question really uncovered true motivating factors why people show up to yoga with any consistency.

“To age with less stress”, “to be flexible and strong to be able to care for my spouse when the time comes”, “to help me be at peace with my body, which is now in “late youth😀”, “to stay healthy to enjoy traveling”, “for energy to play with my grandchildren”, “ better my golf game”, “to not be afraid of falling all the time”.

As these responses indicate, yoga is more than exercise. Yoga can be the answer to aging gracefully with the ability to live more vibrantly and present for others.

Namaste! Anita
