It’s not only about the physical practice, flexibility or strength. It’s about being able to live yoga by heart and using its philosophy as guidance to present moments.

1.Speak your Truth
An important part of yoga is truth. Being truthful and speaking truth has a big impact. No matter where you are at, always stick to your truth and speak from your heart.

3.Surround yourself by supportive people
The people around you have a lot of influence and can lift you up in difficult times. Make sure you are surrounded by supportive people who know your worth when you need it the most.
4.Take each moment as it comes
Life is full of surprises, ups, downs, joy and not so joyful moments. Go with it and take each situation as it comes. Life can be hard, strange, painful sometimes. Just accept it as it is. After the rain comes sunshine!

Life throws all kinds of events and situations at us. Nobody is always lucky and happy. It’s the nature of things, that sometimes hardships ocurs and we need to manage something extremely overwhelming. In yoga we believe that these moments are given to us in order to grow, become stronger and learn from our mistakes, make it better next time.
