The Guardian published a very interesting article on May 16th about how nicely knitting and yoga compliment each other. Click here to read the article.
This quote sums up its general message:
"To really get the gist of why yoga and knitting aren't such strange bedfellows, you need to understand a bit about what's going on behind the scenes. In the same way as yoga uses physical movements to affect a change in your state of mind, so too does knitting."I found this idea fascinating because it perfectly describes my own lifestyle. I touched on the idea of knitting and ice skating positively affecting my state of mind in similar ways in a blog post a while back, and yoga fits into the same category as well.
I started yoga as a way to improve my strength and flexibility for skating, but I definitely continued yoga for different reasons. I love how relaxed and rejuvenated I feel when I walk out of the studio after class.
What do you think of the Guardian article? Do you do both knitting and yoga as well?
