We often want to lose a few pounds. Sometimes we do it without thinking, our body just knows when to consume less. At this time of year, after lots of treats and big sociable meals it can a be a more conscious decision. Yoga can help raise this awareness, encouraging the body to self regulate, provide physical postures to enable the body to work well internally as well as externally, and teaches non violence or ahimsa. This means not simply doing no physical damage to anyone but also being kind to ourselves; not over eating and eating healthily so we can live positively and in harmony in body, mind and spirit. Here’s to a Happy New Year!
