The practice of Yoga develops an awareness, through which we find balance and freedom in mind, body, and life. The awareness of helpful and unhelpful habits, gives us the ability to make choices. When we make conscious choices we are free. That freedom leads us to a deeper understanding of ourselves, what we truly want and how to find it. We can release obstacles, stress and excess tension to become the energy-efficient humans we were meant to be. With practice, the ease and skillful action we cultivate on the yoga mat begins to follow us into our daily life. Ultimately, Yoga has the power to transform us.
From Michael: “During periods of consistent yoga practice, I have a lasting sense of calm while being fully present to the rush of life around me. I feel like the eye of a hurricane. I think this experience is innately human. Peace is our birthright. I believe anyone can practice yoga no matter what their given circumstances – there is a way of practicing yoga for everyone.”
