Hi there and thanks for visiting. My name is Zinia and I am a certified yoga teacher (RYT200 + RYT500 Yoga Alliance). The Yoga Student was created to share what I am learning through gathered knowledge and personal experience. The study and practice of Yoga keeps me questioning and experimenting on my way of being. The Yoga Student may give you some insight but these are my set of experiences and perspectives and you will have your own. Take from it what works for you and always follow your own path.
The dictionary defines attitude as ‘the way we think or feel about something’. Thoughts and emotions stem from the mind, but then what is the mind? And where is it? Is it in our brain, if so then why do we experience heartache? Is it in our tummies, if not then why do we have gut feelings? In this section I write about how I work on my thinking for a really good life experience.
Habits are the things we do. Lao Tzu said that our habits become our character and our character becomes our destiny. I’ve seen quite a few characterless peeps live quite a fine life, and I have wondered at Lao Tzu. I think that’s where we all go wrong. We concentrate on others instead of concentrating on ourselves. In this section I talk about my daily habits along with certain yoga postures, and how they’ve changed me.
Weight loss, weight gain and weight maintenance begins with nutrition. I relish good food. I’m a foodie and I don’t diet but I do watch my health and the weighing scale. What goes in ultimately impacts our mind and body, attitude and habits. A sharp mind and a strong body is what we need first to experience abundance both inside and outside of us. In this section I talk about how food maketh the mood which in turn maketh the dude!
