The word asana has many different translations like
posture and pose, but on a deeper level, asana means to 'sit with'.
The practice of yoga cultivates the courage it takes to 'sit with' what's going on in life.
When we allow time, even if it's a few moments, to sit with how we're feeling, it can help us let go and get back to feeling happy again ;-)
Many just 'sweep it under the carpet' and think that dealing with it at a later point is best, but you and I know that if issues in life aren't handled in real-time, they store up in our minds and body creating anxiety and potentially other health issues.
Look, I get it, we're busy, and sometimes waiting for the right time is necessary, but there is a difference
between ignoring our feelings and being patient for the right moment to address them.
At Gratitude, we value supporting emotional awareness, which is the connection between mind and body and physical health. While yoga can be a physically intense activity, the poses and asanas of practice can bring your brain into a deeply focused, neutral state. This helps you process anything that is bothering you subconsciously, but that you’ve been unable or unwilling to access directly.
Life is not monochromatic, it's colored with fears, doubts, joys, ecstasy and everything in between.
Owning our personal power and ability to press courageously into the tapestry of life brings more joy and less fear.
Yoga is more helpful than you can imagine!
