Wellness Wednesday: Terrible Reasons You Don’t Practice Yoga Yet! by Niomi Lindfors

What is Yoga?

Yoga means union and I interpret this as a union of my mind, body and soul. I feel connected to my heart and my desires and as a result, I feel connected to everyone else. I feel at peace.

Yoga is just stretching or another form of exercise to many, and a trendy hobby to others.

As someone whose lived in Florida their whole lives, if there’s one thing I can’t stand more than slow drivers and people who chomp straight into ice creams like some barbarian, it’s allergies. And if you’ve been here even a couple weeks or months, then you’ve had to face the bipolar weather, the extreme shifts in temperature and all the “fun” that comes along with it.
