Apparently it’s international Yoga day today!🧘♀️ I’ll be the first to admit, I’m no expert yogi🌚 or even reeally a yogi for that matter... and whilst this IS a yoga pose, it’s not necessarily ‘yoga’!
I read a great post (by an actual qualified yogi🙌) @shona_vertue about yoga being a state of mind, not the snapshot poses (like dis👆🏽) you see on the gram!
Yoga for me is not following a set ‘flow’, sequence, or routine... I literally just move, stretch, & breathe how I feel my body wants to in a controlled way! No rules.
It did get me thinking why I love incorporating elements of yoga into my training though... I Here’s why I do:
1. It helps me slow down & calm my million mile/hr brain thinking about my to-do list🤯
2. It keeps my muscles & joints mobile which supports my training in the gym AND other aspects of my day-day life🤸♀️
3. It gives me a sense of balance with the high intensity/fast paced lifestyle I sometimes lead💃🏋️♀️
If you ‘yoga’, why do you do it? If you don’t, why not?
With that all said, there’ll be regular yoga classes at my @londonrooftopgym (with a qualified yoga teacher) every Wednesday from 6:30pm-7:30pm 🌇. If you’d like to get involved please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space! 💙 -
Happy international yoga day peeps! 🧘♀️☺️
