Yoga Ruined My Life

I barely recognize the woman I was before I started practicing yoga. Sometimes, when I really think about it, I hardly remember her, actually. One thing is for sure, I can’t imagine going back to the woman I was before I met yoga.

I can honestly say that yoga destroyed my life and way of thinking… in the best and most beautiful way possible.

Yoga has changed my life.

It has taught me things about myself that I didn’t even know were possible to learn. Yoga has changed the way I see myself. It has changed my mindset and approach to life.

Yoga has impacted my relationships. I have forged better and more meaningful connections. As well, I’ve let go of toxic relationships, and I’ve found meaning in ways that I never knew possible. Yoga has helped me see that I am enough.

In addition, practicing yoga has helped me transform unhealthy self-talk and to let go ways of thinking that no longer serve me.

Here’s How Yoga Ruined My Life.

1. Yoga has taught me not to sit around and wait for anyone to make my life better.

Through yoga, I’ve learned that I don’t need to wait around for anyone or anything to make my life better. Sure, a new job or winning the lottery might nice, but change starts with me.

2. Yoga has taught me that I don’t need to spend money on things and stuff to feel better about myself.

Yoga has shown me that what I need to feel better about myself and the world around me is already within me.

3. Yoga has taught me to appreciate challenges, losses, the bad and good parts of life.

Yoga has helped me learn to go with the flow of life. To take things as they come, even the non-shiny and pretty parts.

4. Yoga has taught me that I am worthy.

Yoga has transformed my belief system and mindset. It has helped me see that I am worthy.

5. Yoga has taught me how to let go of unhealthy relationships.

Yoga has taught me to value and prioritize my well being. Valuing myself includes learning to set healthy boundaries, surrounding myself with healthy people and habits, and letting go of relationships that don’t nourish me.

6. Yoga has taught me how to become more clear and conscious of my values and intentions.

Practicing yoga has helped me identify my values and set intentions. It’s helped me to give me direction, find focus, and see myself and life with greater clarity.

7. Yoga has taught me how to be okay with being uncomfortable.

Yoga has helped me realize that I can handle discomfort. It has shown me that I can make changes when I am uncomfortable and to recognize my own comfort zone–and that I am the only one who gets to decide where that zone begins and ends.

8. Yoga has taught me to let go of drama.

Yoga has helped me see beyond drama, gossip, and the superficial scene. I now want and crave authenticity and real, meaningful connections.

9. Yoga has taught me to go for what I want.

Yoga has taught me that anything is possible. It has helped me transform self-limiting beliefs that once wrecked havoc on my goals or happiness in the past.

10. Yoga has taught me that I am stronger and more capable than I ever thought.

Yoga has taught me that I am so much more and more capable than I’ve ever before recognized. It’s helped me to establish a positive relationship with myself, and to view the relationship with myself as a positive, rewarding, lifelong journey.

    Hurrah! Love the headline first of all. Sucked in. I was expecting something negative on yoga. Thankfully I read something engaging and positive. If everyone did yoga the world would be a better place. It breaks down the walls of what is possible, and, as you said, frees us to let go of the relationships and words which don’t matter. namaste.

  2. Yes, Yoga has been so amazing in my life as well! I love sharing the benefits with my students. Thanks for blogging ❤
