Mentally, yoga practice has resulted in a more positive attitude in handling whatever life throws at me. I am especially grateful for the yoga classes during the long winter months when the sun rises at 8:00 AM and sets by 4:30 PM.
I have discovered that regular practice of yoga also helps me to deal with stress much better, and has enabled me to better concentrate and focus on solutions to problems. As a result, my blood pressure is now under control in the healthy range, and my back is virtually pain free.
I love how I’m learning things about myself mentally, physically and spiritually and how they are all connected. Going through my daily life I find myself thinking about the things I learned during my yoga practice. Things like my breathing, posture, letting go of things I can’t control and living in the present moment.
I am a lady of “maturing” age and yoga has helped me maintain a “youthful” outlook. Yoga practice gives me friendship, exercise of mind and body, and a refreshing burst of energy to carry out into my daily routine. I look forward to the weekly sessions and can’t imagine yoga not being part of my life.
In the beginning, I was unsteady and “stiff as a board”, but NEVER ONCE did I feel that I was lagging behind the other students. The instructors are exceptional at reminding all of us that we are individuals, to take things slowly, and that at every class to follow your bodies’ cues.
I just wanted to drop a quick email to thank you for last night’s yoga class. For the first time in months I had a good night’s rest. I feel super today and love it. Thanks again for your instruction!!!
