Why do we return to the Mat?

Have you ever wondered what draws people to yoga, what keeps them coming back to the mat?

Some of the truths about Yoga acknowledged by the Yogis in this documentary, and in no particular order are:

When you practice yoga for a long time, you’ll eventually become more involved in the spiritual aspects of yoga. It’s unavoidable. 

Yoga is not about finding flaws in ourselves, but to become more conscious of them. It teaches us to be accountable for our lives and allows us to be grateful for what we have. We need to embrace both the good and the bad.

“It forces you to deal with yourself.” Tiffany Cruikshank. She and the other interviewees consistently touch on the idea that yoga is meant to help you understand and accept yourself.

“Yoga has taught me that the key to enlightenment and happiness is embracing each moment as it arrives.” Kathryn Budig.

Whatever shape you’re in, how old you are, how young you are, etc. Yoga does not discriminate. Yoga teaches us to be comfortable in our own skin.

Many people like to give excuses to why they shouldn’t do yoga. These are the people who need it the most.

This documentary shows us how yogis like Kathryn budig, Tiffany Cruikshank and the brothers Chris and John Yax discovered  yoga and what keeps them returning to the mat. I really loved this, I got so much out of it. I hope you do too, and if it encourages you to try yoga for the very first time, even better!
