Yoga can be anything you want it to be.
It’s a practice. It’s a lifestyle. Not just an hour on the mat. It’s physical, dietary, philosophical + unifying. The physical poses are just a small hill compared to the mountain of trying to climb over your false ego, bad habits and things you’d like to change.
The yoga pose is not the goal.
Becoming flexible is not the goal.
Standing on your hands is not the goal.
The GOAL is to create space where you were once stuck. To unveil the layers of protection you’ve built around your heart. To appreciate your body and become aware of the mind and the noise it creates. To make peace with who you are. The goal is LOVE.
For me, yoga today, was weight training and heavy bags.
