“Yoga was given to us by the gods to help ease our suffering” -Tim Miller
#what’s on my mind – I won’t elaborate on the benefits that practising yoga brings for the body and mind. We all heard yoga “is good for you”. To feel all these goodies one shouldn’t actually talk about it but live it. Practise, feel it. After couple of weeks of persistent choice to “try it out” – you will feel amazingly ALIVE. In all meanings of this word. In deep connection to all your bodily functions. You will begin to know your body. Yoga connects you to something bigger, something, that we all have, blueprinted deep inside but forgot about this inner power. It helps you see it, tap into that inner wisdom and change the way you see reality, your life and connection to everything and everyone else around you, including connection to your True Self.
There is an online amazing teacher I found a while ago and decided to practise with her each morning. Certified yoga teacher – Leslie Fightmaster. On her youtube channel you can access different styles of practising yoga, which are well guided through well presented videos, in beautiful HD version. You literally feel as if you were in the studio.
Additionally, Leslie’s amazing, soft, nice, filled with warmth and caring voice is like a cherry on the cake to the whole practising experience. It calms you down by just listening to her guiding 🙂
Her mission is to offer free yoga classes online (with new full yoga class every Monday) and to make yoga free and available to everyone at anytime!

There are many yoga exercises she offers on her Fightmaster Yoga channel specifically tailored for office workers, for headaches and stress, for good nyte sleep, for weight loss, for back pain, yoga to twist and detox, yoga for runners, for beginners, for advanced, for pms syndrome, for balance, Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and much more. You can choose your favourite one and follow until fully master the practice. Just wait and see how you get addicted to the practice and a day without doing your yoga will just NOT feel right. It does affect your Mind Body ans Spirit. Big time.
There is a 90 days programme added by Leslie on the 1st Jan.2015 and a great way to get hooked on yoga. “Yoga Fix 90: Day 1 is a vinyasa flow class focusing on strengthening and opening the upper back and shoulders. We also focus on strengthening the core muscles. This is day one of our 90-day yoga fix to create a healthy habit!”
I highly recommend yoga practice. It can be life changing. Helps to learn how to breathe correctly. Brings out your True Potential…and just don’t get me started on all “eureka” ideas that come to you while you find yourself in this place of peace doing your morning/evening practice…
All uploaded videos by Leslie are accessible for FREE, but I would highly recommend to consider donating at least a bit, something (what goes around comes around!) to her, to unable her to upload more, new free videos and focus on her yoga work. If you find her guidance helpful and well worth following – it would be great to give something in return. I believe Sharing is Caring, and Caring is Sharing. If somebody shares something for free cos she/he cares enough to help people out it’s important to do the same in return. It feels great anyway 😉 So here’s a way to nourish your Soul as well 🙂
If you think you are too old, too busy, to young, too fat, too skinny, too ….. all these irrational, fake excuses here… – THINK again. You are always in a good position to start or deepen your practice.
There is a good video on youtube that I found a while ago that describes a truly inspirational transformation through yoga of one man struggle to health. It’s a story of “Arthur Boorman, who was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War for 15 years, and was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own, ever again. His story is proof, that we cannot place limits on what we are capable of doing, because we often do not know our own potential. In less than a year, Arthur completely transformed his life. If only he had known what he was capable of, 15 years earlier.”
What we read underneath this Transformational video about Arthur’s CHOICE to NOT GIVE UP :
“Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck – you can take control over your life, and change it faster than you might think.
Hopefully this story can inspire you to follow your dreams – whatever they may be.
Anything is Possible!”
And I honestly could’t articulate it better. Here’s the video :
Anyway. Practising yoga several times a week helped me a lot with my spiritual development alongside meditation practice. If you feel it might be right for you, try out Leslie’s Fightmaster Yoga Free online Videos. If it does not feel accurate for you. Keep on searching, ut be sure you move your body. Yoga doesn’t convince you? Try Tai Chi, Chi Gong, running, exexercisingn any way feels right and tailored to your individual needs. Work with your body. It’s a temple of Light. It shines better when you take care of it on all – Physical, Emotional, Spiritual, Psychological level. Merge. Embrace your mind-body-spirit connection. Find the way to be in a flow. For me it’s yoga. What is your way to flow?
With Blessings to all yogis out there x
