The Importance of Yoga in Ones Spiritual Life: Personal AccountI have been doing yoga for the past 20 years and it has been my saving grace. Sometimes my practice has been strong, flexible and powerful, while other times it has been reflective, slow and gentle.

The one constant is that yoga always gives me what I need at that moment.

When you are on a spiritual journey, life gives you lessons, obstacles, joy and many choices. Our current state of mind determines how we choose to handle each situation which arises.

If the mind controls the body, then the mind needs to be calm, clear and balanced, which is much easier said than done. However a great meditation will help the mind shift to a state of nothingness, and some days this works better than others.

One of the main reasons I find yoga vital in my life is because I do not have time to think. Rather the act focuses on the breath and the expansion and after an hour and a half my perspective changes. Everything becomes more manageable and clear. My personal connection with the divine is reinstated and my connection with myself is more complete.

Yoga has taught me that some of the greatest things in life take multiple years to learn. Poses can be perfected but in time that too will change. Each day on my yoga mat is different because each day I show up, I am different. Yoga has taught me to be more kind to myself and accept where I am right now in this moment.

Yoga is a healer, a teacher and one of the greatest gifts one can offer. After every class I thank my body for being healthy and allowing me to do the YOGA.
