Yoga helps you making contact with yourself. Closing the eyes helps the attention to go inwards, to get in touch with yourself. To listen to the heart instead of the mind that is focused outwards. To stop the fluctuations of the mind and let the body give you direction. Stretching your body gives you space, a feeling of freedom and lightness. With this mindful practice you spend time with and on yourself and you will get to know yourself better. What do you feel, what do you want? Yoga gives clarity. And yoga creates a positive, grateful and peaceful mind. From this state of mind you create your reality. Your new you that lives in the present moment.
