I know what you're thinking. "No way does Robbie E do yoga, bro." You have to understand, being on the road like I am and putting my body through a beating week in and week out takes a toll. I need my body flexible and healthy. So yoga it is. Here is why it's great… bro.
Healing - The poses used and conscious breathing serve as a way to reduce physical pain as well as anxiety, bro. We learn practical methods of self-comfort. And through active effort, we advance our practice into self-acceptance.
Breaking Bad Habits - We unlearn patterns of being in our bodies that are hurting us. This teaches us discipline and commitment to our own health. Letting go of the bad habits allows us to see the possibilities for an improved quality of life more clearly.
Responsibility - It teaches us to move from blame to a mature place of responsibility. First, we become responsible for our physical bodies: where we put our hands in downward facing dog, or how to keep our knee above our ankle in Warrior II. Next, we observe our thoughts and begin to take responsibility for our inner dialogue. I know this is deep for Robbie E but even I enjoy this, bro.
I learned a lot about the body during college as I was a phys ed major and am happy to relearn this stuff. Namaste, bro.
