Your body and mind are connected
Just like any other organ, your brain is part of your body. You can't move, act, or think without affecting your mind in some way, because they are connected. Sometimes our mind unconsciously creates unhealthy thinking patterns. Yoga helps bring awareness to your patterns, then uses your body to move through. It asks you to question what your body has been trying to tell you, but you've been too distracted to notice. When we quiet our minds and move with intention, we can get back into our bodies and use movement to move past mental roadblocks.
“Your body knows things long before your mind ever does” – Sue Monk Kidd
