It’s hard to describe the afterglow one feels after completing a yoga practice. It’s not euphoria or sedation. I can only compare it to a new morning, regardless of the actual time. It’s that refreshing optimistic state one encounters at the start of a new day, but without the sunrise. It’s as if each yoga session mimics the experience of a sun rising inside you.
It sounds sort of spiritually profound, and it can be. Mainly, yoga helps improve my agility and my state of mind more than anything (and my physical health–it’s a workout!).
Though I find yoga mats and yoga pants everywhere, it’s not as easy to find yogis (people who practice yoga regularly and tend to be really good at it). There are yoga classes offered at gyms and spas, but these can be pretty expensive. Also, sometimes I find that getting to the locale and returning from it erodes the light hearted feeling by the time you get home.
So, there’s another effective route which is less time-consuming, more immediate and affordable, and that’s the internet route (the route I usually take). Here’s an incredible collection of free yoga videos I’ve completed–legit freebies. Note how the yogis in these videos are confident bohemian women in excellent health; they’ll definitely inspire you to come back for more.
