6 Reasons Why Yoga Practitioners Are More Successful

6 Reasons Why Yoga Practitioners Are More Successful

Success Through Yoga Practice

There are many reasons why yoga practitioners are more successful in whatever they do, but in this article we will talk about only 6 reasons.  In her famous poem, “Success is counted sweetest”, Emily Dickinson tried to explain what success is all about and who understands it the best.  But the real question is, what does it take to be successful?  There can be as many ways to succeed as there are people on the earth.  However, if you want to succeed in the real sense of the word, Yoga can be your perfect partner. No doubt it sounds like a bold statement, especially if you consider the number of businesses thriving solely on one product – teaching you how to succeed.  But the fact is, people who practice Yoga are more successful in life and whatever they do.

Yoga brings about a body-mind harmony

Yoga is an ancient Indian technique that uses simple breathing exercises and body postures to boost physical and mental health.  In Sanskrit, Yoga means “bringing together”, so all the different body postures and breathing exercises bring your mind and body together in perfect harmony.  When a person achieves this rare feat, success becomes just one of the blessings that come with it.

Yoga boosts overall health

When you practice Yoga regularly, the oxygen levels in your cells goes up.  This condition translates into better health and ability to ward off pathogens.  By taking yoga classes and doing this low-impact exercise, you can easily keep chronic ailments like blood pressure, diabetes, osteoarthritis and back pain in check.  As a result your productivity reaches its peak and you are able to achieve your short and long term goals in time. This cascading effect leads you to succeed in everything you do.

Yoga keeps you energetic

People in pursuit of success have to go that extra mile in everything they do and hence require more energy.  When the outer sources fail, the last resort is to rely on the inner storage.  Yoga unleashes your internal energy by improving blood flow and expelling the toxins with every breath. The result? More energy.

Yoga sharpens your imagination

Through books, it is only your intellect that gets enriched; however, for real success you need a perfect combination of intellect and imagination.  For your imagination to grow, you need to be at peace with yourself.  Yoga not only makes your body healthy, but also enriches the faculties of your brain by settling the chaos of thoughts in it.  When you practice Yoga regularly, you are able to focus better and solve complex problems easily by applying imagination.

Yoga keeps stress and depression at bay

You have to overcome new challenges on a day-to-day basis on your way to success.  This constant pressure to perform creates stress.  When you are not able to handle stress, it leads to depression.  However, Yoga is the perfect remedy to keep these stumbling blocks at bay.  This is because Yoga strengthens you from inside by reducing anxiety, panic attacks, stress and depression.  Based on Yoga, psychologists in the UK have developed a stress management program known as MBCT (Mindful Based Cognitive Therapy.)

Yoga Makes you self-aware

Being aware of one’s self is the mark of a successful person.  It means that they accept themselves without being judgmental or overly self-critical.  This is a quality that develops on its own when you are meditative.  Yoga facilitates this state of mind with breathing exercises and Yogic postures.  While rhythmic breathing halts the constant traffic of unwanted thoughts in your mind, the different postures make you aware of your limits.

Conclusion

Yoga is not merely a set of breathing exercises and body postures; rather, it is a lifestyle that facilitates physical well-being, mental peace, better focus and self-awareness.  Therefore, people who practice Yoga are more successful in everything they do.

New Mississauga Yoga Studio Opening Spring 2016

How did business name for new Mississauga Yoga studio “Mind to Body” come about?  So what’s stopping you from practicing yoga – is it your body or is it your mind?  Who is putting limits or thinking of reasons not to practice yoga – is it your body or is it your mind?  Your body feels good when it has been bent forward and backward, twisted, and wringed out, sadly it’s your mind that thinks of myriads of reasons not to practice yoga – too tired, no time, other things are priority, other people in my life are priority, children are my priority – I can’t give priority to my practice, I never stick to it.  All these reasons are made up by your mind, not by your body, your body is meant to move, it feels good when it moves.  These days too many people have lower back related issues, which are for the most part related to sedentary jobs and lifestyle.

Your yoga practice is 100% mental, your body won’t go if your mind doesn’t push it!  Your body feels good and energized when it moves.  The more you don’t move, the more tired you are going to feel.  It becomes a vicious circle.  The less you move the more tired your body will feel and your mind will start to feel fuzzy too.  The more you move, the more energized you will feel and your mind will feel strong and clear.

You need to start a program that works for you and then stick to it, whether it’s yoga classes or fitness classes or perhaps dance classes.  If you are unable to do it at home or lack motivation to do it at home, then you need to get out and get into a group environment to move your body.  Mississauga Yoga studios offer a variety of classes you can explore.  You need to figure out what works for you, you then need to be consistent.  Think of it this way, in order to make a certain income level, you need to put in certain number of work hours.  Same principal applies to your yoga practice – you need to put in some time to work your body to make it fit and healthy.  It all starts with convincing your mind, be consistent with your yoga classes and you will see results.  Nothing happens overnight, everything requires work, so does your yoga practice!  It is your responsibility to support your body that supports you!

If you are looking to be in a group class environment, we offer both hot yoga and regular yoga classes catering to Mississauga and Brampton area.  Try out different classes and meet different teachers to find what fits you best.

Your body hears everything that your mind says, so motivate your mind…your body will follow!  Convince your MIND to get your BODY fit and healthy!
