A friend I recently met who found out I practice Yoga, asked me to show her nice pictures - which of course should be on my phone - of fancy poses I can do. You got it wrong! Yoga Asana (postures) is one arm of the journey which is only meant to support you in meditation. Yoga is a lifestyle and a journey towards inner reflection and bliss. The poses themselves are not a standing moment in time where you and your ego feel uplifted by how sexy your body looks. The pose is a meditation, enhancing your physical and mental health to access your true inner self.
Really just Google it and you will see for yourself. (The picture I am posting here is a posed pose of me looking internally - almost literally) #yoga #yogalife #meditate
