Happiness is a skill and practice. Happier people do not have easier lives, with less hard work, grief, divorce, or financial strain than the rest of us. They’re simply more grateful for what they have and choose to be conscious of their contentment more often.
Santosha, a Yoga Philosophy
Rebecca Pacheco, Health.com
To be honest, I was inspired to start doing yoga because of how impressive, graceful, and fun the poses look. But I got more than what I expected from the classes that I attended over the years. I was mentally and physically challenged to step out of my comfort zone. To get into a headstand, a crow, or a challenging arm balancing pose, I learned to adopt a positive attitude in order to break the mental barrier that was built by fear and self-doubt. The learning process, attention level, and attitude of the pose had a positive compounding effect on other aspects of my life. I learned to be optimistic and positive regardless of what goes on externally, and I found happiness and fulfillment from within just by changing my attitude.
I share this in hope to inspire you to find happiness and fulfillment from within by challenging your mind and body with yoga, and learn to focus from within with meditation. The guided yoga class below will help you to achieve happiness, and improve your mood and energy level.
