London Ashtanga yoga Teacher "Yoga practice opened my eyes"

What is yoga and meaning of yoga explained by Ashtanga teacher while practicing on alignment yoga mat

 For everyone Yoga means different things regardless the styles of yoga that we fall in love with or number of years that we practice. Even age, gender or Lifestyle have little to say here. For everyone Yoga has a different meaning because of the relationship that one develops with the Spiritual practices and experiences, that come along with it.

What does yoga mean to me?

by Yoga teacher Joaquin Gomez

For me, Yoga means many things, but essentially it means “Union” and “Connection”.

Through Yoga, I am connecting with my body, my mind, and my breath in ways I never thought possible before.

At the same time, yoga is “being in the now”, living this moment fully engaged with it. I discovered that when I practice yoga (asana, pranayama or meditation) I am not worrying about anything unrelated to that specific moment.


When I practice I am able to immerse myself fully to the practice like a kid playing his favorite game, I am able to unfold into it.


This is why I got into yoga in the first place. When I first started practicing yoga (asana), I was in a stage of uncertainty, not knowing what I wanted to do with my life.


The Yoga practice opened my eyes completely. I started seeing the reflection of myself in other people. I started to understand who I was, and who I wanted to be


Before I was living the misery of my own creation. Yoga helped me to see that my reality, was only a perception, and I could change it whenever I wanted to.

Yoga also means “truth” to me. When you are able to connect with yourself, when you are balanced, you are able to see things the way they are, with no judgment, just observance. You’re able to see the “truth” of things.

When you are in balance, when you are in-tune with your inner-self, only positivity comes from within. Love, clarity, and empathy naturally blossom
