It’s not about being good at something. It’s about being good to yourself. – A lot of people have the misconception that yoga is just for “eco activists” and therefore it doesn’t suit them. But what is yoga really and how does it affect you?
The history of yoga begins in India, where it was devised to live in harmony with yourself about 2.000 years ago. The word itself is Sanskrit, an old Indian language, and means to harness or to yoke something. Yoga describes the state of having a clear spirit, a strong body and the path to achieve these states. Overall, it is a practical philosophy of life. Not only does yoga strengthen your coordination skills, flexibility and stamina, but also gets your metabolism in gear and forestalls diseases of your cardiovascular system. Yoga works integrative, meaning, whilst practicing the agility of your body, building muscles, loosing abundant weight and establishing strength and energy your spirit will experience impulses. These impulses help you recognize negative thoughts and habits and stop them at the same time.
