What's different in my life now is I look differently at how I view self-imposed or society-inferred limits. Yoga has shown me that just because I am the age I am, there is no bearing on what I can and cannot do in yoga, or in my life in general, if approached practically. I am now 54 and at 64 and 74 I fully expect to be able to do what I do now, if not more. Also, what is different is that I have no more back pain, I am more flexible and have more muscular endurance than I had when I was younger. What I love about yoga is the peace and balance it brings to me, and affirming the importance of living in the moment. One cannot effectively do yoga and create a shopping list concurrently! Living in the moment centers the mind and fully engages me, allowing me to go farther than I ever imagined. I want to take this opportunity to thank the Yoga Mala team for their expertise, professionalism, endless patience and knowing when to encourage me to move ahead in my practices. You are all awesome!
Yoga has brought a positive consistency to my life, allowing me new perspective on myself, the choices I make, and the direction I want my life to have. I enjoy the different styles of yoga taught at Yoga Mala. I realize the benefits that each style offers and how they complement one another. I have noticed the influence my practice is having in transforming the quality of my health and my outlook on life. I have less physical pain in my lower back, and with regular practice, yoga helps keep the pain in check. I believe I have become more spiritually-minded. This is a direct result of the practice of breathing and devoting time for self-examination and reflection.
Yoga has helped relieve lower back pain that I have had for years. It helped calm me in a stressful period in my life. Yoga is always good to relieve stress for me and feel my body get more flexibility. It is enjoyable to practice with others at many different skill levels. There is no pressure; everyone improves at his or her own speed. I have recommended to many friends that they should take up yoga at Yoga Mala, as it is a holistic to everyone's life in terms of a time to meditate, learn to breath and feel the joy of a stronger more flexible body.
