Why has yoga become such a global phenomenon? 

We see mostly women in classes, who in recent years have begun to be supplemented by men, and who are gradually discovering the amazing effects of this spiritual exercise.

 

Why is it that women are so happy to come back to the group classes, which are so special and powerful every time?

"See you tonight at yoga", one woman shouts to her colleague in the office. 

YES. Spending time together in the yoga space transports us to another place the moment we enter the room, where the energy of everyone present is harmonized and our souls resonate with the calm atmosphere. It 's as if the whole group exhales together, letting it be known how glad they are to be HERE and NOW.

 

Even though I always look around at the exhausted faces, I know that in the end, everyone will leave with a smile on their face.

Among its many benefits, yoga has proven to be a powerful tool for empowering women and fostering a sense of community.

 

How does yoga actually empower women and build their strength?

 

Yoga is often praised for its ability to empower individuals regardless of their gender. Women in particular have found profound strength in this practice. Yoga promotes their self-awareness and self-acceptance and helps them accept their bodies and minds as they are.

 

It encourages women to acknowledge their strengths and work on their weaknesses, both on and off the mat.

Through yoga practice, women discover their inner strength, building not only physical strength but also mental and emotional resilience. This empowerment is the universal gift that yoga offers.

 

One of the immediate and visible benefits of yoga is improved physical strength and flexibility. The postures help to firm muscles, increase flexibility, and definitely improve balance. 

Women who practice yoga regularly often find that their strength transcends the mat, making everyday tasks easier and boosting their self-confidence. 

 

In addition to helping women connect with their bodies, yoga promotes a sense of appreciation and gratitude for what their bodies can accomplish. This is especially important in a world that often bombards women with unrealistic beauty standards. We must treat our bodies with kindness and respect in every way.

 

Yoga also includes mindfulness and meditation practices that cultivate emotional resilience. Women often face unique challenges and stresses in their lives, from playing with family and career to dealing with societal expectations. 

Yoga provides a safe space for women to release emotional tension, and find inner peace and mental clarity.

 

Through breath work, women can manage their stress and anxiety and ultimately improve their emotional well-being. This discovered resilience equips them to face life's challenges with calm and confidence.

There has been more than one occasion when emotions came over me during mat practice where I had to stop and let the tears break out. Certain blocked points in the body caused the release of pent-up and hidden emotions that were eager to surface. It is very liberating and I have witnessed many such experiences, which I considered to be my success, where the client was internally relieved.

 

Yoga helps build community. Studios and classes often attract a diverse group of people, but women in particular find solace in these spaces.

Yoga communities offer women a sense of belonging, camaraderie, and support. Women can come together in a non-competitive and non-judgmental environment, fostering strong bonds and friendships.

 

Women share their personal journeys, struggles, and triumphs. They celebrate each other 's successes and offer support in difficult times.

Yoga enables women to make healthier choices, set and achieve goals, and advocate for themselves in various aspects of life. During this transformational practice, yoga helps women find their inner strength and navigate through life's challenges with grace and confidence.

 

It can remind us every day that when women support each other, incredible things, even the impossible, can be achieved in life.

Whether we 're facing a tough challenge at the office, just need to support a sick family member, or are going through a momentary workload and depression, there's always one piece of advice for everything.

 

Yoga and friendship - are the answer to everything, so don 't hesitate to let us help you! Take a yoga class together with a friend and then have an open chat over a delicious cup of tea... there's always a solution!
