January: it’s time for yoga

yoga-20647_640-1

Christmas time is now behind us. Unfortunately we ate a little bit more than we were supposed to and now we are starting the 2016 with some extra pounds on us. We all know what the solution is: eat healthy and exercise. In order to do that, I mean exercise regularly, we should find a sport that really suits us. For me it’s yoga. Actually yoga is much more than a simple sport, it’s more a philosophy, a lifestyle. No wonder meditation is such an important part. But no worries: even if you’re not into meditation or chanting mantra you could still benefit from some asana or sun salutations.

Personally what I love the most about yoga is that you don’t need to worry about your performance. The goal is the perfection of the posture but in order to do that you need to listen to your body and pay attention to your breath, trying to get better a bit at a time. I would say that yoga is more about process than results.

If you felt inspired by my wise word and you feel like trying yoga, here’s everything you need to exercise. But you don’t really need any special equipment, just you. Namaste!
