Yoga is especially relevant to creativity because of the spiritual aspects of the practice. When you consider that the practice of yoga originated from that need for the individual to somehow unite with the universe, how can we not proceed to harness that energy for creative thought? Yoga provides that pathway to creativity thought to make it particularly helpful to the writer.
“Your life is a sacred journey. It is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the path… exactly where you are meant to be right now… And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love.” Caroline Adams, Author.
