What is your Yoga?

What about bridge pose? To bridge the gap between yourself and your breath.

I love yoga because it helps me restore a sense of balance and self reflection.  When I wake up in the morning or after a long day, I need a way to reconnect.  I do this through mindfully moving my body.  This could be through a series of asanas (poses linked with breath), a long walk with my kids, alone, or just simply quiet time; doing nothing, being nothing, and not being responsible for anything even if just for a few moments.  Taking this time, helps me recharge and self nurture, so that I can be of service to others.

Many other people, especially children, have their own yoga.  Surfing, shooting baskets, playing with legos, climbing a tree, bird watching, to name a few. These could also be considered forms of yoga.  When I instruct children, I encourage them to find an activity that they enjoy which links them to the present moment and where they come out of the activity better than when they came in.

That in my opinion is yoga.
