What is Zen?

Zen is a total state of focus that incorporates a total togetherness of body and mind. Zen is a way of being. It also is a state of mind. Zen involves dropping illusion and seeing things without distortion created by your own thoughts.

Proof in Yoga is Every Where

If the following video doesn't impress you and make you ask if you should also be doing yoga, then I am not sure that there is anything that will convince you!  Someone she once spoke to said, "It's to late for me!"  And she replied that it was never too late for anyone.  Yoga has many stages and there are very easy poses and go to the most difficult.  Everyone has to start some where.  Most yoga poses can be modified to fit your current fitness level.  This lady didn't start doing her most difficult poses when she started. Dr. Oz recently had a show and had audience members do several self tests.  Among those tests he asked the audience to sit on the floor reaching forward trying to touch their toes.  He stated that those over 40 who couldn't reach there toes was a sign of artery hardening.  I don't know about you, but the thought that yoga stretching could keep me off the road to heart disease made me sit up and take notice.   I challenge you today to try at least one yoga class this week.  There are many ways you can participate.  Join a local gym for a trial yoga class.  Most gyms offer one day passes or discounted trial memberships.  Go to your local video store.  A lot of video stores offer exercise videos for free!  Watch a yoga class on a TV program.  And lastly there are yoga apps that you can download onto your smart phone.  Several of these apps are free!  I personally like daily yoga.  So get up, get out, and try a little yoga!  There are many benefits!  Namaste' my friends!

  1. I love the peace and thoughtfulness that yoga brings into the day. I've been in a terrible habit of not doing it recently. I accept your challenge and will make myself go to a class today! (Idk if I'll ever be able to touch my toes though! I have shortened tendons behind my knees... ;D ;)
