Why I Practice Yoga

"The light in me honours the light in you" - Namaste

Yoga is a means to experience life on a physical, mental and or spiritual level. It is deeply rooted in ancient Indian philosophies. Yoga is a Sanskrit term that translates to ‘union’. This is the most popular meaning of the term, although there are many other descriptions that are used. The popularity of Yoga has significantly increased in the last decade around the world, initially starting as a grassroots movement to now being incorporated in corporate environments. Despite it’s popularity, there are still a lot of misconceptions with what yoga means and many people quickly dismiss it, saying it is not for them and miss out on understanding it’s great benefits. In my own life, yoga has been something that I have been engaged with for the last 10 years and I believe that the knowledge I have gained can be passed on and be of great value for others. So if you are on the fence or are curious to learn more about Yoga, I have listed below some reasons as to why I practice.
