The Buddha once said that you could search the whole world and not find anyone more deserving of your love and compassion than yourself. Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh said: "Love is the capacity to take care, to protect, to nourish. If you are not capable of generating that kind of energy toward yourself, it is very difficult to take care of another person. To love oneself is the foundation of the love of other people. Love is a practice. Love is truly a practice."
Practicing yoga can be a great act of self-care, of self-love. Taking the time and energy to care for our bodies so that they serve us well now and for the rest of our lives is a basic element of self-care. And through our yoga practice we can develop greater compassion and kindness towards ourselves, so that we an offer that to others.
There are so many life-altering benefits of a regular yoga practice: Increased strength & flexibility; Improved balance & posture; Reduced pain; A quieter, more peaceful & focused mind; Reduction in the negative impacts of stress; More energy. The list of physical, mental and emotional benefits is very long.
But finding a class that works for you can be challenging, regular classes get expensive, and most beginners don't know what or how to practice at home. That's where a DVD is helpful. You can bring an experienced, highly trained teacher into your home and practice whenever it is convenient for you.
DVDs also make great gifts - it's a wonderful way to show someone you care about their health and well-being. Practicing with someone else is also a fun thing to share.
