10 Mind-Blowing Facts About Yoga

7- Turning dust into gold

If you notice, all the points above have one thing in common; they all contain the miracle of changing ourselves in a gradual and positive way.

That is what is meant in alchemy, when the shaman or the magician or whatever the character is that turns dust into gold does so.

If you do yoga, in six months your body changes, but almost immediately your mind changes, your emotions change, your presence changes, and everyone will notice your new shine.

8- Inversions as anti-aging agents

If you look at yourself in the mirror and then look at a photo of you from 10 or 20 years ago you will see that some things have changed. It would be silly to pretend that the sagging of the skin reflected on the mirror is not also happening inside, meaning to our internal organs. It is.

Inversions, especially when done well (best to learn with a teacher) with smooth and long breathing, and for a long time, help all internal organs return to their original place because they have gravity working for it.

Isn’t that something?

Inversions bring about superpowers too, but that may be way too mind blowing, after all this is only my first article here, we are just getting to know each other.
