Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.” – Buddha

“No matter how much it gets abused, the body can restore balance. The first rule is to stop interfering with nature.” – Deepak Chopra

There is a song in the playlist I practice yoga to – Magic by Coldplay. When I hear the words and rhythm while I practice I feel strong and focused – successful for that moment. I focus. I realized recently that I do think yoga is magic; it’s a transformation to a more positive way of life on and off the mat. This is the magic I feel on the mat and off the mat, a lot of it’s interchangeable and becomes one as part of my whole being. Are you looking for some magic?

On the mat:

  • Get stronger
  • Get longer / more flexible
  • Improve breathing
  • Improve balance
  • Improve posture
  • Increase self-awareness
  • Reduce stress
  • Increase resilience
  • Increase the ability to focus
  • Find clarity
  • Focus on the present moment
  • Self-regulate
  • Reduce pain and tension
  • Follow one instruction at a time

Off the mat:

  • Improve sleep
  • Improve mood
  • Reduce stress
  • Relax the way you react
  • Pause before you respond
  • Take a breath to calm down
  • Practice a pose you like to unwind
  • Increase confidence
  • Reduce insecurity
  • Improve cognition
  • Increase clarity
  • Take a moment when you need one
  • Realize that you have choices in how you feel
  • Improve breathing
  • Slow down some of the aging process or allow you to appreciate it
  • Remember to practice the present moment
  • Remember that gratitude is a way of life
  • Be humble and kind
  • Strong, balanced, flexible
  • Stand upright
  • Understand how to improve imbalances
  • Encourages you to have “overall” healthier habits

If you feel you could benefit from a positive transformation, find a yoga class that works for you. Be consistent. You will grow into the magic. You know it’s true.

The magic I see is when someone comes to class and works with the mind and body they have today leaving the class feeling better than when they came in. I see healing relationships when parents come with children. When two or more people come together, the magic is the bond that’s created through their practice together.

Here's my blog on who your friends are.
