“Higher Than Most on Yoga?”

yoga_man“Higher Than Most on Yoga” is about getting high. I use the word “high”, as an endearing term for those moments in life when everything is right with the world. When you erupt into a smile for no other reason than you feel like smiling.

It is an approach to maximize our potential and reduce the stress, which continuously dampens our happiness. It is learning to use seven tools inherent in the tradition of yoga. These tools are yoga, plant-based diet, mindfulness, meditation, gratitude, compassion, and spirituality.  Mastering these seven tools will allow us to be “high” every day of our lives.

Yoga is not a religion, or some mysterious cult filled with the fanaticism of evil. It is a scientific approach refined over hundreds of years, that can serve as a blueprint for us to develop holistically, mentally and physically to maximize our individual potential. Yoga is the union of mind and body, working together, to help us understand our true purpose in this life and bring us to the realization that our only limitations are those we place on our ourselves.

Yoga has been embraced by the military, pro athletes, business and educational leaders and many other individuals as a means to improve personal productivity and well-being. “Higher Than Most on Yoga” embraces the true meaning of yoga, the celebration of our divine gift, the body. The sole vehicle in which we travel through this dimension called life. The body is known in many religious traditions as the temple of the soul for a good reason and these seven tools can help us experience life to its fullest.

Incorporating the seven tools of “Higher Than Most on Yoga” can help us lose weight, build strength, and improve muscle tone.  There is growing research showing that these practices are helpful with depression, high blood pressure, cancer, PTSD and to those suffering with addictions such as alcohol and drug abuse.

Getting “Higher Than Most on Yoga” is an experiential activity, meaning through the continuous practice of these seven tools, you will maximize the pleasure you derive from being alive and living within your personal goals and beliefs.

The practice of these seven tools will provide a glimpse into what it feels like to be “high” naturally. Being “Higher Than Most on Yoga” does not mean every moment in your life will be perfect, it just means you recognize the low moments for what they are, temporary clouds that will soon give way to sunshine.

Reaching perfection is impossible, but rising to be our perfect selves is attainable, which is what we aim to accomplish following the “Higher Than Most on Yoga” approach to life. Life is a continuum that starts before birth and until we depart. Why not incorporate the tools that can help you make the most of it?
