In the West, Yoga is often thought of as simply physical exercise and stretching.
It is that. But only partly.
The movements are designed to prepare your body for meditation and mind work.
If you are attending a yoga class or participating in an online version. Don’t skip over breath work. It can be very helpful for your physical and mental well being.
For example, yoga and other mind-body practices have been shown in a study to help with blood sugar levels in Type II diabetics.
If you do not know where to start or would like to try / start yoga but are unsure how you may modify or adapt a class for your own body or needs it may be helpful to start privately with a one one one / private yoga session.
