I was actually inspired by YogaMagazine’s quote to teach the concept of letting go and finding peace.
“Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.” Ray Bradbury.
Yoga teaches our body to be flexible and strong.
It teaches our mind to be flexible and strong.
It teaches us to connect our body and mind with our breath in order to find this place of calm within the Self.
To be at peace.
But we can always find this place of peace even off the mat. Whether we’re on an airplane and there’s a family with ten kids who are driving you crazy, or at work during rush hour, all we have to do is control our breath.
Yoga teaches us that breath control is the key to managing stress and stressful situations. The breath calms the nerves and allows the mind to be open to change, while staying grounded in our morals.
We work through the tightness and knots of the physical body on our mat so the shoulders can lower, the jaw can relax, and the digestive system can continue to function when stress arrives.
Let go of your stress, and find peace within the Self.
We focused on this in my LA Fit Chatsworth class on Thursday night. xo.
