Yoga isn’t magical. It is radical. Yoga changes your life!
Within a period of three or four months one of my clients living in Ikoyi got cured from a numb finger and a stiff wrist, and on top of that, lost four kilos. Another client of mine, who lives in Lekki, experienced something similar: Within a period of two months she started taking healthier lunch-packages to work. Today she feels more balanced in life and her love-handles are melting away. One of my clients from Victoria Island stopped eating meat (and yes, white meat is also meat, and not a vegetable). Thank God she didn’t lose weight, since that clearly is not her challenge.
I asked all three of them what happened. And all ladies basically said the same thing: They just felt like adding more fruits and veggies to their diet. They just felt like having lighter food. They just felt like having dinner at an earlier time. You just start feeling like it …
Practising yoga is not about losing weight, practising yoga is about changing your lifestyle. And food is a reflection of your lifestyle. Yoga helps you re-create a well-balanced life: You start drinking more water, definitely because Chi says so at the end of every session, but especially because you feel like it. You crave a healthier lifestyle and add more veggies and fruits to your diet, you stop having late dinners, and you feel less stressed. You have not put yourself on a particular diet, you have simply started practising and have become more receptive. You finally listen to your body’s needs and have stopped ignoring its signs of imbalance. You discover the real you!
I read a lot of blogs written by people who have cured cancer, fibroids, strokes, arthritis or acne using alternative methods. These sites often times are fancy and hip, they create a major hype and have a huge amount of followers. Fans claim that a particular person changed their lives. Tracy Raftl – The Love Vitamin – is a great example. Check out her website at here. The 28-year-old Canadian cured her adult acne by changing her diet and lifestyle. Today, about 30,000 women follow Tracy’s journey to naturally clear skin. She, today, is the living proof that wellness starts in your mind.
I am fascinated by stories like these. But why do we wait until it is almost too late?
Our bodies constantly communicate with us and send us warning signs. But most times we simply ignore these signals. We wait until we fall sick and have an excuse to stay in bed. We wait until our immune system is down, and we no longer are able to function like we normally do. We wait until we have a nervous breakdown before we make an attempt to change our routine. But, I believe, we don’t have to wait this long.
It is about time to (re-)invite wellness, well-being, and self-healing into your life! Learn how to listen to your body and transform your life. God provided everything we need: Most of us are given bodies that once treated the right way function perfectly.
