My first months of being vegan
Initially, I started my vegan journey with a detox diet. Since early childhood, I felt too big and constantly wanted to lose weight, although I always had an optimum BMI. Losing weight wasn't easy though, as I naturally have a lot of muscles and my body just isn't built to be thin.
15 minutes of yoga at home. In this yoga class, you will increase your physical and mental balance, while also working on strength and flexibility. As we know, yoga is union and this will benefit us a lot during the coronavirus, when we may feel depression, anxiety, frustration, anger or sadness. Because while you work the body with this yoga sequence, you will also work on your mind. We increase peace and happiness with yoga. All you have to do is keep the focus.
Most of us found yoga through some kind of struggle
Health has always been easy for me, and I am very grateful for it. I was never physically sick or had another struggle which might have brought me to the path of yoga. Most Yogis I know, have a sad story behind their first contact with yoga. They struggled emotionally or physically and had great improvements through their yoga journey. In my case I cannot say that I was drawn to yoga to get a cure I was rather drawn by it because it combined spirituality with something tactile. Yoga is so amazing because you can develop spiritually, using the body, the outer layer. Most spiritual practices are very hard for us, as they include concentration, focus and patience. But that’s exactly what most of us lack and which is actually why we want to start on the spiritual path in the first place.
The fear of death dictates our lives. When we free ourselves from it, we will be free and happy.
Everything is a cycle. Everything evolves, dissolves, and transforms. We know the physical laws of creation and destruction very well, but we don’t like to implement this knowledge to our own lives, as it shows us our own momentariness. We are born, live and then we die. When we look at the cycle of life we have to accept our own perishability and this frightens us. Death is the biggest fear we all have to face one day, better sooner than later. All fears we have are originated in the fear of death.
