I LOVE yoga... a phrase I’ve been saying for almost 2 years now. A phrase that my friends and family are sick of hearing. But it’s true!
I was lucky enough to come to yoga through a friend and co-worker, Lucy Valente, who introduced me to the joys of yoga and is one of the instructors at Peace of Mind Yoga. Over the years, yoga has become so much more than just the physical practice. Yoga offers a place to find quiet, strength, the support of wonderful people. After a bad day, I would think, “I don’t feel like going to yoga”. Begrudgingly, I would go anyway. Before the end of class, my body, spirit, and heart feel lighter and am always happy that I came to class.
I LOVE yoga (sigh)….
Focusing on breathing, the movement, and thoughts of gratitude help me to shift attention in a new, more positive direction. I’m not sure what part of yoga I like best: the non-competitive atmosphere; the acceptance; the never-ending encouragement; or support from all the yogis and instructors at Peace of Mind. All these qualities makes this a place with so much more to offer than just the practice of yoga. If you haven’t tried yoga yet, give it a try and you might annoy your family by constantly saying, “I LOVE yoga” too.
