Through the various poses, we begin to listen and trust our bodies to tell us when we can push ourselves further, when to turn to variations or the assistance of props, or when we need to sit in a pose a little longer to get the full benefit of the pose.
Breathing and the Importance of Breath
Breathwork is a big part of yoga. It teaches us how to take deep breaths which helps to relax, de-stress, improve sleep, reduce blood pressure, and oxygenate our body. We can call on breath exercises we learn through yoga to benefit us whenever we need that help.
Learning poses and mastering them takes consistent practice and patience to get the pose just right. Learning patience through yoga can transcend into other parts of our lives. We may begin to notice how we handle various situations differently as a result of learning patience through yoga.
Life today moves at a very fast pace. Yoga helps to slow us down, becoming more present.
