Yoga Meditation Benefits Health: September Is National Yoga Month

Well, here we are and it’s fall again. I just found out the Department of Health and Human Services has designated September as National Yoga Month. What a great way to make everyone aware that yoga meditation benefits health. Events are being planned throughout the month, and they aren’t limited to just us here in the U.S. either. For instance, there’s something called Yoga Recess, a program that gets children involved in yoga during school. There are even some events tied to the autumnal equinox that’s almost upon us that’s being run by Shiva Rea. Here’s a short piece at Diets In Review by Jill Lawson that highlights some of the bright spots.

Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted — in body, mind, and heart — and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow — or we begin to flow more in our lives.                                                            —  Cybele Tomlinson
