Why Yoga is So Great for Inner Peace
The popularity of yoga is still unbroken and unquestionable. It is not only a physical activity, but instead a method to discover our deepest inner selves and find connection with our state of being. The practice of being helps our mind forget about doing and focus on finding the perfect inner peace.
Yoga sessions often start with a short period of meditating that helps preparing both our body and mind to the upcoming exercises – hence, negative energy passes, giving way to positive vibes flow. Mind gets cleared and spirit slowly moves into a balanced zone which is key for the perfect self-control and makes being easier.
Besides meditation, Pranayama is also a popular practice usually incorporated into yoga sessions. Pranayama is about to extend and control the breath, which is considered to carry our life force. During Pranayama, we turn all our attention to breathing and gradually learn how to control and deepen it. Meanwhile, we soon start to expend our attention to other parts of our body, listening to every little sound and move of it. This process is therefore a straight and great way to get to know how our body works along with its needs and desires.
As yoga is about slowing down and focusing on our inner selves, poses should be executed slowly and peacefully. There are certain resting poses that specifically require to stay longer, thus making us turn our awareness inward. As a result, we learn to give ourselves time and be patient in the long run, in all areas of life. This self-learning process is essential to a balanced lifestyle and understanding our existence will help create better relationship with the outer world and people also.
Inner peace is something everyone has, but only very few have discovered. Nowadays, when social media and celebrities drive the world, avoiding comparing ourselves to others is technically impossible. Most people are not satisfied with themselves and when negative emotions flow, they feel trapped and miserable. Thanks to yoga, mind can be controlled to stop releasing emotions letting us reach serenity and see why we are all absolutely special, perfectly unique and totally one-of-a-kind.
Life is a very long learning progress not only about the world but our inner self as well. Yoga is the best practice to acquire the knowledge of self-love, self-care and find inner peace that helps us live our best life. It is never too late to start your journey, that is why we have daily yoga sessions at Mondo Surf Village for any levels, as part of all our Packages.
