Yoga is creating space.
Space in the joints of the body. Increasing flexibility, a deeper range of motion, by creating space in the muscles, allowing fibres and tendons to gently lengthen.
Space in the breath, instead of grasping for one shallow breath after another, breath becomes longer, stretched, warmer.
Space in the day for some precious, often much needed, time to nourish ourselves.
Space for rest and letting go in Savasana (relaxation pose).
Space for honest reflection and self-assessment.
Space in the mind for calmness and still to arise, and perhaps a deeper level of thinking to occur.
Space for love – love for ourself, working on accepting our flaws and acknowledging our strengths; love for others - our family members, our friends. That time to practice yoga can refresh and renew our patience like no other.
Relax and enjoy the space of yoga and all the benefits it brings. Even if only for 5 minutes, you won’t regret it.
