I received my first thrill as a blogger yesterday when author Victoria Moran thanked me for my recent post about her inspiring books.
It's easy to recommend something that's had such a positive effect on my life.
One thing that I can't recommend highly enough because of the benefits it's had on my life is yoga.
In her book, Fit From Within : 101 Simple Secrets to Change Your Body and Your Life - Starting Today and Lasting Forever, Victoria recommends you Discover Yoga:
Yoga addresses the whole person. It improves the state of the mind as well as the shape of the body.
She confirms what I believe by saying, "Yoga can be a total fitness package that increases your endurance, strength, and --here is where it really shines--flexibility. No one is too large, too stiff, too old, or in any other way not right for beginning to practice traditional hatha yoga (hatha refers to physical yoga, not one of the more mystical disciplines).
Moreover, yoga addresses the whole person.
It improves the state of the mind as well as the shape of the body.
If you opt to explore it, you may find that as you become more flexible physically, you become more flexible mentally.
You may also find, as many a yoga practitioner has, that you make a gradual shift to a healthier, more balanced diet without even realizing that this is happening."
She goes on to explain that there are lots of different styles of yoga, from gentle to vigorous so it's important to shop around until you find the one that works for you.
This is such important advice.
Yoga is definitely not one size fits all; it should never hurt and is supposed to be noncompetitive.
Don’t settle; find the class and/or teacher that works best for you.
Yoga can also help with our overeating issues by helping to increase our awareness and reconnect our mind/body/spirit.
If you're inclined, I encourage you to Discover Yoga and if you want a healthier relationship with food and your body or are looking for a compassionate practical guide to dealing with issues of overeating, pick up a copy of Fit From Within : 101 Simple Secrets to Change Your Body and Your Life - Starting Today and Lasting Forever
