This was the title on the front page of a recent issue of the Living section for the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The article focused on a new required course for freshman at Emory University- Yoga. They are using yoga as a way to help students with stress and time management. This is happening throughout the country and it helping to prepare students to handle the lifelong challenges of stressful situations.
I often hear people say, “I can’t do yoga because I am not flexible enough.” That is the exact reason to do yoga! Yoga poses are important but is just a small part of what yoga is about. Yoga teaches you to be flexible in your daily life.
Through breath, meditation, other centering practices and poses you gain direct access to your inner resources, enhancing your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well being.
At Custom Calm we realize that some cannot get on the floor and have other limitations, so poses are adapted to meet the individual where they are at. It is a “work -in”, not a “work- out”, with the focus on living a happier, more peaceful life.
How different our lives would be if we started yoga practices when we were in college! It is not too late to begin at any age.
