Did you today is International Yoga Day?
I mentioned yesterday that I spent my Friday night in the orchard doing yoga under 90* heat, followed by a hard cider and chat with a friend. While it was fun, it also showed part of what yoga is all about…community.
Yoga is about taking a step away from life and to your mat to move and breathe. To take a break from the stress and worry and long to-do lists to just be where you are and in your moment.
Yoga is about us accepting the past, appreciating the present and embracing the future. To stop fearing the what-ifs and unknowns and instead be excited about what those moments may bring.
As much as yoga is about community, it’s also about self. To find ourselves, to love ourselves and to love others.
So today I suggest you take some time to practice. I don’t care if it’s 5 minutes, 20 minutes or 60 minutes, but you and your body will thank you for it.
Are you celebrating International Yoga Day today?
