Over the years, yoga has saturated most cities in America with boundless yoga studios, websites, magazines and social media, the majority highlighting yoga postures or physical practice (Asana). Asana is a profound way for the body to find expression through physical form, each person finding their unique way of expressing themselves. The postures are one of many avenues to create transformation in ones body, finding balance, strength, discovering ones edge, releasing, opening, and of course relying on breath to unite with movement to create the fullest expression. There are countless more, and most of the time, we aren't even aware that they are transforming us daily.
2014, the year of perception shifts. Yoga is Unity, to yoke, to unite ourselves with our highest nature. Everyone unites with their highest nature countless times without even recognizing or noticing. Connecting with another human being is yoga, looking up at the moonlight, listening to ocean waves, feeling love, laughing with friends, holding hands, running, reading the perfect quote, eating a healthy meal, playing, listening, crying, hugging, all of these things unite us differently, and just like Asana, we all have our own expressions of yoga and what it is that unites us to our highest nature. I offer you to listen more to the things that do just that, recognize them, embrace them, notice...that is yoga and it will change your life. -Peace
