Yoga and the miracles of yoga are the buzzwords these days. Especially in Byron Bay! Everybody considers it as a panacea or a magic pill that you can take and voila, overnight, you have got it all – the perfect work-life balance, stress-free days, no sleepless nights, wrinkle-free skin and the josh

Yoga could be a cure-all to manage the onset of certain ailments especially if you are at an increased risk. But why is that almost everybody has a different opinion about it?

Why is that one of your friends describes it as exhilarating while other sums up his experience as thoroughly boring? One feels magical and spiritually elevated with never-ending energy while another person wakes up with sore muscles. Why is there a sea of difference between the experiences of people who have essentially taken the same class or gone through a somewhat similar session? Our expert yoga teachers in Byron Bay have listed out 5-reasons why Yoga doesn’t become a way of living for some and why some people can’t harness its benefits to the maximum. 

This doesn’t mean that even if you don’t enjoy it or don’t feel elevated can’t practice yoga by the beach in Byron Bay! On the contrary, practice makes perfect and we all know it.


If you are really keen on taking up Yoga for your mental, physical, spiritual and emotional healing, it is very important to go all-in – just what you would do any other form of therapy or workout. Sattva Yoga & Massage has a wide selection of yoga classes in Byron Bay for you to choose from. Whether you want to improve your fitness level you want to meditate, faith is a tenet you can’t do without. The realization that you want to evolve should come from within and only then, you can accomplish it on a physical level. Otherwise, even Pranayama could be just sitting, breathing and waiting.  And soon enough, it will turn into a snooze fest and you will find yourself looking for excuses to bunk the next class. 

Give it time

One of the hardest miracles of yoga to achieve. Don’t expect miracles at the drop of a hat. You wouldn’t dream of it when you start working out in a gym and it is no different from Yoga. It is a communion of mind and body, and it needs commitment. While you can experience the difference within one week, it is still a long way to go before you could actually see the difference on a physical level. Our yoga studio in Byron Bay is located right in front of the beach to give you the opportunity of continuing the path you’ve chosen during your holidays. 

Be consistent 

At best, you should give the practice at least 21 days to understand its impact on you. If you have been consistent and punctual in these 21 days of Yoga practice, you are sure to see a visible difference in your stress levels, anxiety and performance levels.  It is important that you turn up for the classes every time and think of it more as a lifestyle and not a mere 1-hour class that you can ditch anytime you want to.

It is not easy

Meditating, positions and ‘living in now’ may seem easy but they sure aren’t. The miracles of yoga can arrive, though they are not easy to achieve! You have absolutely no idea about the tricks your mind can play when you shut down the outward noises and seek respite within you.  So, have absolute trust that you will reach there but patience is what you need the most. A yoga lesson in Byron Bay in our studio in front of the beach can help make this transition easier.

Learn it from the Experts

Yoga is a spiritual process that aligns your body and mind in harmony. The pranayama, poses and breathing techniques should be practiced under expert supervision. Our experienced teachers can walk with you and show you how to reach perfection. Each body has a different set of weaknesses and strengths. Our trained yoga teachers in Byron Bay will guide you based on your body’s temperament. They will motivate you to not give up and help you practice the Yogic art in the most conducive way without impacting your body adversely. 

Yoga is not something that you should do if you are lazy to run or lift the weight. It is a way of life and spiritual practice that can heal you inside out.  Try to address these gaps and continue practicing! 

Happy Yoga! Namaste!
