Change is at the heart of yoga : Chris Lalor : August 2017
Most people come to yoga wanting something in their life to change. Some come with very specific ideas about what they would like to see change; remove back pain, stretch short hamstrings, help with erratic sleep patterns, fix the acidity in their stomach…. Others come with a vague feeling that something in their life is out of balance and think well, let’s give yoga a go.
For thousands of years people have practised yoga seeking to change their bodies and minds. Change is at the heart of yoga. Yoga takes you on a journey inwards where you are shown how to look at yourself. It opens you up to new sensations, new experiences that help you see your limitations, your blockages. It helps you find the resources within yourself to change and move beyond your limits.
