Om Shanti Lea!

Beautiful post! :D I think the most wonderful aspect of yoga and a yogic lifestyle is its holistic approach to health. This seems to be particularly important as we grow older and quite frankly, just makes the most sense. Just as we wouldn't treat and infectious sore but only putting a band aide over it- so we can't ignore the "insides" of our bodies while trying to accomplish being healthy-in a physical culture the concentration is on "what's on the outside" and many times, health is judged by how "healthy" we look. But as you get older.....the proof is in the pudding. Personally, as I began to enter the midlife years, I found out first hand how imperative a holistic approach to health was to my success of achieving my goals. Perimenopause is a challenge to say the least- but I almost, at this point, want to say that it has been a blessing in disguise because I was really forced to take a good long look at my health habits-I was a mental and physical mess- I mean a real mess! At first I tried to clean up the mess by "exercising"-going to the gym. But I found that, honestly, it didn't help...ok maybe just a tad, Yes, I lost some weight, but it did nothing for me hormonally-nothing for me spiritually. In Yoga I found the connection between mind body and spirit and I realized ...that was the key.
