What are the long-term benefits of a regular yoga practice—not just over months, but even years and decades? Most any regular yoga practitioner has experienced the immediate benefits of the practice in terms of improved mood and better energy.
But are there longer term changes that unfold over time, that affect not just our immediate health and wellness, but go deeper, affecting our personality and even our outlook on life?
In this free download, renowned yoga teacher Judith Hanson Lasater reflects on her own early experiences with yoga and the personal transformation that propelled her to dedicate her life to the practice and become one of yoga’s first and most widely know and highly regarded teachers.
From the very first yoga class, she notes, the direction of her life was changed forever. But importantly, in the long run, she was particularly struck of the effects the practice had on self awareness, and the ability to recognize how the mind works for—and often—against us.
Judith shares numerous inspiring stories about her growing recognition of this phenomenon. She further discusses the growth of yoga and the challenges and opportunities facing the teaching of yoga as a profession going forward.
