Still, it is fascinating, and I am learning so much. History, origin, writings and theories. This week we moved onto really breaking down the poses, anatomy and alignment. My understanding of what yoga really is has grown by leaps and bounds, as has my appreciation of it.
My physical practice has benefited too. As has my general well-being. When you are working this hard to better your physical practice, and learn how to better yourself inside, you start noticing a lot more what you are putting into your body and how you are treating it. While sleep still needs work, my eating habits and general health practices have improved immensely.
