I've been doing yoga regularly for a few months now, so I'm still at the beginning of my journey. Along with the physical benefits like increased flexibility and much improved back pain, I've noticed yoga starting to affect my life in different ways.
One of the instructors here (I think it's Melissa), when in savasana she often says something like: "accept that there is nothing else you need to be doing right now". I'm studying at the moment, and when I feel myself losing concentration or my attention wandering, looking for a reason to procrastinate, her voice comes floating into my brain and I'm able to take a deep breath and focus again. This has been so good for getting things done, and for not getting frustrated.
So yeah.. what are the unexpected ways (or not unexpected!) that yoga has changed in your life?
