Yoga For Arthritis
"I like to think about how yoga practices can be sprinkled throughout the day." . For many people especially those living with #arthritis and chronic pain it can be overwhelming to think about practicing #yoga for an hour at a time. I haven't studied this from a research perspective but anecdotally those who sustain a long-term practice make yoga a part of daily life. Instead of something they have to find the time and energy to do it's just happening. They stretch and do a little joint… Yoga For Arthritis, Chronic Pain, Perspective, Therapy, Shit Happens, Day, People, Life, Perspective Photography

"Yoga is less an activity than a way of being." . #Yoga means #union. Union is less something you do than something you can experience- a perspective a state of oneness. In the earliest mentions of the term yoga it was referred to in this manner. As early practices emerged they were practices to foster a state of yoga. I like to hold this perspective because it allows anything that brings you into oneness to be a practice of yoga. You don't need a mat or a manual and it doesn't have to be… Yoga For Arthritis, The Fosters, Perspective, Hold On, Manual, Therapy, Activities, Perspective Photography, Naruto Sad

This is considered to be a position in which the spine can be lengthened and the base supported- a position that allows for optimal flow of energy through the #chakras that run down the center of the body. This may have been true for ancient yogis who didn't work at desks or use handheld devices.
