“Stop trying to fix your body. It was never broken.”
In our modern world, when we say yoga, what we often mean is "asana" — the poses for the physical body.
Because of this, mainstream culture and many teachers and students have a distorted view of what yoga means. The trap of thinking of yoga pants as usually only for one type of body, needing a “yoga body” to practice as one that is skinny, toned, tanned, and super flexible.
Yoga develops inner awareness by focusing our attention on our body's abilities at the present moment. It helps develop breath, and strength of both mind and body. Yoga is less focused on outward, physical appearance and more focused on teaching how to tap into the body and mind to focus on the present.
The focus of your attention is inward, rather than on how the pose looks, or comparing yourself to others.
In its true essence, yoga can be an integral part in promoting and developing positive body image and self-esteem.
Understanding the benefits of yoga from a mind-body perspective will hopefully keep us returning to the mat, week after week and help keep a positive outlook in our lives.
