Star Wars - Teaching Us A Thing Or Two About Yoga

Sci-fi and yoga fans unite! Star Wars is a prime example of how simple lifestyle changes that can help us live more fulfilling, healthier lives. 

Take our dear Yoda for example: Yoda was a very capable and wise Jedi, and in his later years he understood the importance of a healthy body and a healthy mind. 

In contrast, Jabba The Hut was a couch potato, who suffered from disease, fatigue and weakness.

Obi-Wan Kenobi didn’t get stressed about facing Darth Vader as he knew that an over-stressed and over-active mind only hampers thinking and increases blood pressure. 

Meditation, relaxation breathing, and yoga are all great ways to calm the mind and body. 
Try new things and challenge yourself. Keep learning and moving in order to stay active both mentally and physically. 

Most importantly, if you aim to be able to jump around just like Yoda when you're 100 years old, you're on the right path to a long, healthy life.
