As we spiral deeper into a digital age of smaller, faster and “I want it yesterday!” we become further removed from our thoughts. We download, pre-programme and plug ourselves into all sorts of distractions from real life and deliberately fill our mental gaps to avoid hearing ourselves think. We spend more time interfacing than interacting and wonder why we often feel lost and confused about life.
Yoga seems to be a buzz word at the moment that means different things to different people, causing confusion as to what it really is. Some use it physically to lose weight or become stronger, others use it mentally or spiritually to quieten their mind and get to know themselves.
In fact, it is all of these objectives and more.
