I can say a lot about yoga. But then again, you just have to start practising it and find out for yourself. You can go as far as you want to. Just relax and feel good about your body or expand your awareness and go into deep meditative experiences. It is all lovely and worth while.
In my experience yoga is an ideal gateway to get into your body. To be aware of your senses and thoughts. To be aware of your surroundings. Combined with (chakra) meditation you can find tremendous peace and strength within. Key for me is staying true to yourself, your body and the world around you. I am, after all, the bare yogi. No need for pretending.
Yoga is not:
- A way to never be stressed out or upset ever again - we're only human
- Pretzeling yourself - you don't have to join the circus, do you?
Ephimeral - just because we love yoga and have mindblowing experiences, doesn't mean we are vague. In fact, it usualy makes people more present and focused.
