Do you feel too busy with work, tired from all social appointment (eating tapas, having late dinners), your neck and back are feeling stiff and sore but your brain is overactive and your to do list gets longer and longer? You want your house to be tidy and prepare healthy dinner (with an empty fridge), you need to call mom and dad and so there is no time left to sit back and relax.

Does this sound familiar? I have been there, I think we all know this feeling of being too busy. Give yourself a break. Close your eyes for one moment and let yourself sink away in a daydream. When you suddenly get disturbed by a loud noise or the ringtone of your telephone you realize you are living in a hectic world which never stands still.

For me there is one solution; I roll out my yoga mat and start my practice. Why this helps? Here are my 5 reasons:

1. Give your mind a break

I recently read online that each day the average person has about 60,000 thoughts of which 90% are repeated thoughts. Is it any wonder with this amount of inner traffic we lose touch with our self? Give yourself a break and step onto your yoga mat! I ensure you won´t regret you went to yoga.

2. The after yoga-feeling

Do you remember how you felt after a yoga class? Your mind has been freed up, your body feels light and all over you feel sparkles. You are more conscious than ever, energetic and full of positive vibes! Try to keep this feeling as long as possible, because we all know yoga really starts when you come off your yoga mat.
3. Your body is your temple

“A house is not a home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.” Says Benjamin Franklin

Our bodies need proper nourishment, our bodies need physical exercise, our bodies need adequate rest and relaxation, and our bodies need stimulation of the mind to be at our very best. Below, I found the infographic on Huffingtonpost. I don´t have to give you any more explanation about the benefits of yoga for your mind and body.

4. Get into a healthy lifestyle

Yoga is not just a workout or a relaxation class, yoga is a way of life with a healthy lifestyle. You are more aware of what you eat, how you live your life and yoga let you think about your values in life. It´s the higher purpose you find when doing yoga.
So unclutter your mind and step onto your yoga mat to forget about your to-do list and daily concerns.

5. Experience every moment consciously

Do you really experience every moment consciously? Or are you thinking about your to-do list while you are on the phone with a friend? The practice of yoga allows you to be aware and still in a world consumed with chaos. Peace and tranquility will be achieved through a weekly focused yoga class where you experience the world with a helicopter view rather than seeing only your micro problems.

No time to waste! Step onto your yoga mat and give yourself a break!

Every Monday and Wednesday evening we teach English Yoga classes in Malaga centre (20:15- 21:15 hours). Calle Moreno Monroy 5 3rd floor. Side street of Calle Larios.
