Never is a ‘New You’ more topical than at the beginning of a New Year. It is almost impossible to escape the countless tips, tricks and wonder-workouts on how to get your body into optimum shape. If however, you are serious about a stronger, leaner and healthier you, skip the quick-fixes and up your yoga classes to achieve the physique and wellbeing you desire, not just for the months ahead, but for life.
Every time you hit the mat, yoga not only improves your strength, flexibility and stamina, but just as importantly increases your awareness and focus. This heightened focus and awareness helps you define your goals. And as we all know SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-framed) goals are the most effective.
Another key element is the ability of yoga to improve your self-confidence and nurture positive thinking. Making changes in our lives, big or small, can require tremendous courage and tenacity. Yoga helps remove the self-doubt and gives you the energy and inspiration to keep pursing your goals.
Our own personal practice and teaching experience has taught us that regular yoga sessions play a significant role in achieving your goals. The synergy between the body, mind and soul that is achieved through yoga, but extends well beyond the mat, still amazes and inspires us!
So this New Year don’t be afraid to dream and set goals. Step onto to your mat with confidence, knowing that you will achieve.
When you focus on inner health, outer beauty will follow.
