So you wish to embark upon a journey of personal development, both physically and mentally, through the practice of yoga. This is a great decision, and one that you will be thankful of, however there are a few things you should know before you get started, to help ensure you get the most from your first yoga experience.
This word ‘Mindfulness’ seems to be used a lot these days, ‘Be mindful of what you eat’, ‘Be mindful of others’, ‘Be mindful of how you spend your money’. Though surely there is more to this ‘mindfulness’ than watching what you eat, being considerate of others and being thrifty?
If you feel your life could do with a little more clarity, perhaps some grounding, or increased energy, strength and flexibility, then yoga could be just what you are looking for. It is common knowledge that yoga can help us develop strength and flexibility in our bodies, however when practiced regularly, yoga will also help us to develop strength and flexibility within our minds as well. This development of mind and body will have a positive impact on your life and help change it in ways you may not have imagined.
A good night’s sleep will not only refresh you and lift your mood but it will increase your energy, your productivity levels and can even help with weight loss due to its effect on hormone regulation. But how can you ensure that you get a good night in the first place?
