It's the time of year when we've made our resolutions for change and embark on ways to bring balance back to our body, mind and life after the Christmas period. Resolutions and Yoga have some things in common, they involve an Intention - to take action, create change and usually aim to improve our well-being in some way. One major difference - Resolutions tend to be goal orientated whereas Yoga is an awareness, a type of knowing or getting to know yourself.
There is saying “ if you want real change you have to do the inner work”. Although this typically has a spiritual connotation, the physical practice of yoga can offer a way to notice, explore and understand what is present in our body and mind and how we respond or react to our experiences. Each time we step on the mat there’s an opportunity through the practice to get to know ourself from the inside and out, on all levels of our being. Through our practice we learn and grow and can make informed steps towards positive change. This is the reason why Yoga is often referred to as the path to transformation. Why not give Yoga a try? Getting to know yourself a little more may also be just what you need to help you stick to those Resolutions .
