Yoga practice for optimum physical and mental strength

Written by Rhian Hunter

The word ‘Yoga’ is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘Yuj’, meaning ‘to yoke’ or ‘to unite’. It is the union of body, mind and soul.

This union has a direct cause and effect relationship, what you bring to the mat mentally will present itself physically, and what you hold within the body will affect the mind. The key is in influencing one element with the other, working towards finding true connection, inner strength and balance.

2020 has thrown us many a challenge, and continues to test the strength of our bodies and our minds. We need a strong mindset to keep us positive and grounded, and to help prevent feelings of stress and anxiety consume us.

A consistent yoga practice is one of the most valuable ways to combat your physical, mental and emotional challenges, making us stronger in both body & mind.

We all know that the physical practice of yoga (Asana) makes us physically strong, but more than anything yoga is a wonderful way to nurture your sense of inner strength.

Take time to practice and enjoy these poses to eliminate feelings of self-doubt, and reveal your inner peace and strength!
