How many years have you been practicing yoga? What’s the reason behind your practice?
I’m an avid follower of health and wellness. Since I was still working, I was an advocate of all forms of physical exercise. I dance, trek, jog, walk and other physical exercises. Not until approximately 4 years ago that I got seriously involved with a local gym club. I started religiously doing cardiovascular routines and toning repetitions. While inside the gym, I got curious and decided to try other routines which could challenge my physical capabilities. It was then that I started to explore the world of yoga.
Yoga was a total stranger to me, but as I informally joined sessions, I learned the importance and proper way of breathing- inhaling and exhaling through your nose, as well as developing the core to achieve a perfect pose. It gave me a sense of accomplishment. This has driven me more to deepen my relationship with yoga. From then on, I stopped doing my cardio and other forms of workout and attended daily yoga sessions.
