There’s no doubt that our minds are overstimulated and constantly on the go in today’s world, leaving us feeling stressed, anxious and depressed. Before I set out on my yoga teacher training journey, I was working flat-out in advertising, constantly feeling tired and exercise was the last thing on my to-do list. I felt completely overwhelmed and unable to cope with not just my job, but my life outside of work too. I was binge drinking on weekends and in a bad cycle of ‘work hard and party harder’ that I didn’t want to be in. My energy, confidence and will to do anything, other than Netflix and chill, was out the window. My physical and psychological health was at an all-time low- and I knew it because I actually noticed it.

In this post, I will share a few insights of becoming a yoga teacher with you that focuses on all the amazing benefits that this job brings along. Get a cup of tea and enjoy reading…????
Yoga is a journey of self-discovery. There are times when individuals become frustrated from tough situations in life and unconsciously increase more stress on the body while coping with them. Yoga helps you cope with them from more of a meditative perspective. Since you are struggling with tight hips it can be quite frustrating to stand up after sitting too long, or practicing an asana that requires hip flexibility and strength. Thankfully, there are asanas that will help open and stretch the hips. Before my yoga journey, I had no idea how tight my hips were, until I gained interest in learning about my body.
How yoga can help you feel more grounded in your everyday life?
