What is yoga? What does it mean to you? We’re giving you some extra inspiration to hit the mat today. This two-minute video we shot at Wanderlust Vermont BACK IN THE DAY will provide all the motivation you need. We asked yoga teachers (like Elena Brower, Chelsey Korus, Halle Becker, Kia Miller and Seane Corn, just to name a few) to tell us what yoga means to them and were moved by the honest, real and inspiring response. Watch now… and find out what yoga means to these teachers.

Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice that originated in ancient India. It involves various postures, breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation methods that help to enhance the overall well-being of an individual.

The postures or “asanas” involve various physical movements that can improve flexibility, strength, and balance. These movements are often accompanied by controlled breathing techniques or “pranayama” that can help to calm the mind and reduce stress. Meditation and relaxation techniques are also an important aspect of yoga, helping to improve mental clarity, focus, and reduce anxiety.

The practice of yoga is often associated with the development of self-awareness and the attainment of inner peace. It is not just a physical practice but a holistic approach to life that involves the harmonization of body, mind, and spirit.

Yoga can benefit people of all ages and fitness levels. Regular practice can help to improve overall health and well-being, reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, increase energy levels, and promote a sense of inner peace and harmony.
