Join us for some yoga…

So a while back I did a story for the paper on this really cool yoga studio (among other things they teach yoga to kids for increased concentration, self control and a host of other things) The woman I interviewed really struck a cord with me – I’m weird like that – some people I just know instinctively are good souls and I usually end up cyber stalking until they become my friend or run away… any who I had a brilliant idea… why not have her do a few guest posts, I used to do yoga and LOVED it and with all the changes in my life I definitely need something to keep me focused (apart from prayer – church girl over here)… 
so join me in welcoming Michelle from feelgoodyoga OVER HERE she will be sharing her knowledge over the next couple of weeks… 
Allow the beautiful mom of two to introduce herself and join us over the next few Saturdays for some enlightenment πŸ™‚

From Michelle:

What is the hype about?… 
Finally, yoga has made its mark in our community and Yoga got a strong leg up on the world stage when Prime Minister Narendra Modi from India, called for observing an International Yoga Day, describing the ancient science as “India’s gift to the world.” 

Modi’s unexpected reference to yoga in his UN General Assembly speech came when he was talking about climate change and going back to basics. β€œYoga is not just about fitness or exercise, it is about changing one’s lifestyle”. And that is exactly what it does.
I stumbled upon yoga when I was studying my Media Studies Diploma. My creativity of advertising lecturer gave us a 101 day assignment focused on being taken out of your comfort zone and trying something new. Yoga is what I chose to do and that is when the magic took place, the swish of an idea turned into a mind altering wonderland.
At that time of my life, I was suffering from depression. After the 101 days of doing yoga, I was one step closer to combating the illness. 13 years later, I now own my own yoga studio, work for a nationwide successful advertising company and there is never a dull moment or thought that enters my mind. I thank my yoga journey for that and am so excited to share all that I have learnt through those years with each and every one of you.

 Here we go…
