Happy Mind = Happy Life

yoga-every-day

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and here at All That Matters we believe that a happy mind begins with a quiet mind. So consider some reasons to incorporate yoga into your daily routine:
  1. With Practice Comes Self-Acceptance: Yoga asks us to sit with our thoughts and physical sensations in a non-judgmental way. The more often you move with awareness noticing breath, body, mind, and emotions the more likely you are able to maintain that awareness when the "challenging" sensations arise... bringing compassion to the situation.
  2. Syncing Body and Mind with Breath Reduces Stress: Controlled breathing, Pranayama, has been proven to reduce symptoms associated with stress and attention-deficit disorders, anxiety, insomnia, and depression. Even if you find it difficult to sit and meditate, try to focus on your breathing for just 5-10 minutes.
  3. It Builds Physical Strength: Stronger and more pliable muscles, stability in the joints, and improved balance will reduce susceptibility to pain and injury... leading to increased energy and vitality.
  4. Daily Practice "Keeps Us Clean": The basic practices of yoga and meditation are simply good hygiene. They help clean out the bad thoughts and bodily sensations we feel during the day allowing more room for rest and positive engagement with the world around us.

The back door is open… Come watch the trees bloom, the birds fly, and the woodland creatures find food. Some days we can hear the stream, rushing water in the background, other days the space is filled with raindrops on the roof. If you are seeking a space of tranquility and rest come make a visit. The walls have fresh coats of paint and each week the space finds home to new plants, books, and artwork. And, of course, find your way back to your breath and back to your body on your yoga mat.
