Yoga philosophy encourages the use of mindfulness in all aspects of our daily lives. Focusing on the breath to calm the mind as well as guide movement in the body brings balance to all the things we see, feel and experience. Mindfulness keeps us in the present allowing us to live life to the fullest. These are the practical tools gained through the practice of Yoga.
