Being in the body

For the most part, practicing Yoga makes us feel good. Why? A host of reasons can be offered, but there is one in particular that struck a chord with me, while teaching a class the other day. I realized that during practice, I am mostly in my body, being in touch with every element; from breathing to muscles, bones and skin. This creates a strong feeling of being in the now, whilst the rest of the time i.e. outside class, we are more in the mind, disconnected from the body.

What is the meaning of being in discord with the physical self? It means allowing our motions to be mechanical and automatic. In practicing Yoga, our thoughts, actions and body are in harmony. It is a major component in feeling peaceful and happy.

Learned from: an observation during a Yoga class.
