Ah yoga.. something we all know about but very little of us participate, why? For myself, being an athlete its not that I haven’t considered or tried to getting into but always something that I never followed through with. The sports I grew up playing didn’t have a heavy aspect of flexibility in order to succeed (or so I thought) they focused on endurance and strength which were two words I didn’t combine with yoga.
As I am getting older and have been out of the competitive field for a while, I still have a priority of taking care of my body and now more so than ever my mind. While being healthy for me might not mean being able to skate fast or throw a ball far anymore, but being a peace with how I look physically and how I feel. Too often I wake up with a sore back or kinked neck and complain about these issues but seldom do I try to fix these and/or try to prevent them.
I am looking forward to how this will change my overall wellbeing, from my sleep to relaxing my mind and everything in between!
