Yoga means union between mind and body. By combining poses (asanas) inspired by nature and animals with conscious breathing techniques (pranayama), you experience a healthy connection between your body and mind that brings you fully into the present moment where life is happening. The more you practice yoga, the more present you become to your life.
Here is a 20-minute home yoga practice for beginners:

Declare “I am alive and well” as you reflect on this quote by Howard Thurman: “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
A well that is full has plenty to share and finds itself surrounded by beauty. It’s an inviting place to visit because it’s brimming with aliveness. Fill up your own well today by taking good care of yourself and notice how it naturally spills over and benefits others.
