My Yoga Anniversary: Then and Now

2 Year Anniversary of Yoga

Today marks the 2 year anniversary of making the decision to practice Yoga.
I’ve come to the conclusion that Yoga represents the greatest combined mind and body experience that I’ve come across in all my years of living. Practicing Yoga is a key form of wellness and prevention, mental clarity and focus, and stress relief.

What Yoga Meant in the Beginning

I was under a great deal of stress and anxiety stemming from my decision to depart from the traditional 9-5 paradigm and make a living from my ideas. I had issues with extreme worry about worst-case scenarios that never actually materialized, but were quite real in my mind. I started with meditating but could not ‘quiet my mind’ enough to quiet those voices of self-doubt. I decided to give Yoga a try after much research and deliberation.

What Yoga Means Today
Yoga has come to represent a very important ritual in my quest for greater understanding of mind and body. I have been involved in athletics all of my life. At this point, I am my most flexible in terms of range of motion, and I get more out of my body’s efficiency than ever before.
Yoga provides incredible prevention and recovery of injuries and allowed me to complete two full marathons this year without any major setbacks. I’ve been diving deeper into Isolation Tank Therapy and my ability to dive deeper into Float Therapy is directly related to my ability to ‘find my breath’ through consistent Yoga practice.

There are athletes who use Yoga to recover. I do not. Yoga is a life management tool that happens to benefit people who are involved in strenuous physical activity.
