A 21-Day Quest That Empowers You With A Fun, Rewarding Yoga Practice You’ll Love And Stick To (No Matter Your Lifestyle Or Physical Condition)
The glistening abs. The unshakeable calm. The boundless stamina. The poses that bend the laws of physics.
When people who don’t do yoga observe people who do, many often think:
“I’m not slim enough…”
“I’m not flexible enough…”
“I’m not young enough…”
“I don’t have enough time…”
“I don’t have the discipline…”
But if any of these thoughts sound familiar to you, know that you ARE enough. And that you too can lock in a lifelong yoga practice that gives you all the incredible rewards of this timeless practice.
We’ll prove it to you when you join the inaugural 21-day Mindvalley Yoga Quest. Even if you think you’re too busy, old, unfit, or out of shape.
And speaking of rewards…
Did You Know That Yoga – When Done Right – Gives You Far More Than Just A Supple And Sexy Body?
If you just scrolled through Instagram or Facebook, you might think yoga is only for bendy young people showing off in their new lime green leggings.
But while yoga does get you incredibly fit and flexible, the truth is it’s way more than that.
In fact, yoga is perhaps the only practice on the planet that perfectly balances the four dimensions that make you, you:
1. Your Body
2. Your Mind
3. Your Heart
4. Your Soul
This Is Why Yoga Isn’t Just A Workout – It’s A Work-In
Traditional workouts and personal growth practices don’t typically give you this kind of balance. Which is why many people end up sacrificing one form of wellbeing for another.
For instance, there are physically fit people with strong and healthy bodies, but who haven’t read a single book in years.
There are mentally fit people with a high level of knowledge and intellect, but who don’t take care of their physical bodies.
And, you’ll also find people with a strong spiritual practice, who struggle to show up and perform in the ‘real world’.
With yoga, you don’t need to make any of these compromises. You can have it all, which includes:
• A heightened sense of self-awareness, so you can make better choices that serve your Higher Self and nudge you towards your best life
• Dramatically improved flexibility, muscle strength, and posture – no matter your current age, shape, or condition
• Greater compassion and empathy for others, which elevates your personal and professional relationships
• Liberation from traumatic past experiences that weigh heavily on your mind, heart, and spirit
• Healthy and sustainable weight loss (once you shed the excess weight, it stays off)
• Lower blood pressure and blood sugar, and a stronger immune system so you heal faster and fall sick far less often
• A sharper memory and a more organized mind, so you can remember more and slip up less
• A natural shift from negative to positive habits (your body starts knowing what’s good for you)
• Deeper and more rejuvenating sleep that leaves you feeling completely refreshed the next day
• Relief from chronic pain, including back pain, joint pain, muscle pain, and more
• Enhanced clarity, focus, and productivity throughout the day, so you get more done in less time
• Powerful resistance to stress, anxiety, and depression, leaving you with a lasting sense of bliss and peace of mind
• A stronger connection to your natural intuition and creativity, so you’re always channeling brilliant solutions and seeing what others can’t
• A spiritual sense of oneness with the people and environments around you, so you always feel connected and supported in the world
• And so much more (you could fill a textbook with all the incredible benefits of yoga)
How Does Yoga Do All That? (Brief) Scientific Explanation
Yoga gives you all the expected benefits of a good physical workout (some more intense forms of yoga even count as a cardio workout).
But there’s also something else going on when you do yoga, and it’s connected to your body’s autonomic nervous system: a ‘control panel’ that regulates many of your automatic functions like your breathing, digestion, and heartbeat.
This autonomic nervous system is further divided into two sub-groups:
1. The Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS):
Associated with your fight-or-flight response, which is triggered through potentially harmful situations like growling dogs, extreme stress, or sudden loud noises.
2. The Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS):
Also known as the rest and digest system, it conserves energy by slowing your heart rate, regulating digestion, and managing intestinal and gland activity.
The SNS and PNS are connected to each other like a see-saw: when one goes up, the other goes down.
Unfortunately, since modern life assaults you with endless stress and jarring stimuli, your mind and body spend a lot of time in a state of imbalance – leaving you struggling to relax, recharge, and focus in your daily life.
Studies show that yoga returns this balance to you by activating both your SNS and PNS at different points of your workout. This brings you back to a state of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance, both on and off the mat.
In short, yoga has a profound effect on your body’s inner workings – which in turn strongly influence how you feel, think, and show up in the world.
Cecilia Sardeo is the Host and Co-Founder of Zenward by Mindvalley, a thriving online community of Yoga enthusiasts—both seasoned and new practitioners alike—from around the world who learn from the most influential Yoga instructors today.
Cecilia was introduced to the ancient art of Yoga as a young child by her father, but would later give up on the practice in adulthood as she focused all her attention and energy to her career and entrepreneurial endeavors.
But after years of “hustling” and relentless work, Cecilia, at the age of 28, found herself 44 pounds overweight, and more stressed out and unbalanced in her life than ever before.
Cecilia would later rekindle her love for Yoga, completing a 500-hour yoga teacher certification in Bali. In doing so, she discovered powerful techniques (both on and off the mat) that helped her not only lose that excess weight, but also thrive in her personal and professional life.
She is now a certified Yoga instructor and her mission is to share the same love she has for this ancient art with the rest of the world, and help others—regardless of their age, background, and experience—reap the multi-dimensional benefits of Yoga.
