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.
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.
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.
