Welcome to Anandani Yoga

Welcome to my blog! 

Why "Anandani"?

Anandani comes from the Hindi language and means "joyful". I wanted to write about that sense of bliss that comes from a great yoga practice. The bliss that comes from being fully present, immersing yourself in an experience, on or off the mat. The bliss that comes from being fully authentic, spontaneous, and in the moment. 

But I do know that life isn't always blissful. Life has its ups and downs, but somehow we pull through. We find that burst of strength, peace, and inspiration. Life is about the uplifting moments, the dark moments, and everything in between. And that's what yoga is, too. Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word which means "to yoke". "Union". In a physical yoga practice, we get into poses that give us a sense of peace. But we also get into poses that cause discomfort, physically and emotionally. It's important to explore and pay full attention to both, because both have something to teach. As we go through our yoga journey, we find that there is oneness in all of that. And in all these seemingly fragmented parts of our life's journey, we somehow find that union, and find bliss.

To be honest, I'm not quite sure how this blog will turn out. I'll just let it unfold...

Thank you for visiting, and I look forward to your comments!
