We all are born Yogis as a baby, don’t you remember?

As children, we are born yogis and perform yoga naturally, then why do
we forget the practice and lose flexibility and become judgmental,
ignorant and egoistic as we grow up!

Babies are the only beings (other than liberated souls) that are in
perfect harmony with themselves regardless of the place, time and
company they are in. They could be anywhere, with anybody and don’t care
who is watching. They simply perform Yoga asanas (postures) to support
their physical and mental development.

Not only that, their heart is pure, they don’t judge or discriminate
people because of their earthly wealth. Their needs are simple.

Many great yoga masters from India said “children are born yogis”.
You can simply watch how children perform different asanas at different
stages of their development. For instance, when they are learning to
walk, they do the cat stretch to strengthen their spines or perform the
Pavanamuktasan to boost digestion.

As children, we are born yogis and perform yoga naturally, then why do
we forget the practice and lose flexibility and become judgmental,
ignorant and egoistic as we grow up?


“The main reason is that their interactions with their surrounding
environment, mainly parents, teachers and society teaching earning
cunning ways to earn monetary wealth over being good hearted, have a
bigger influence on them. So they don’t get to interact much with
nature. Secondly, the pace of life is different these days and parents
don’t really encourage their kids to do yoga.

Thirdly, the ego starts developing and does not allow the child to be natural anymore as an adult” .


According to many yogis & rishi munis yoga itself can never be
forgotten because it is as natural as heart beat or sunrise. “There is
an innate intelligence that knows what postures are good for the body.
The ancient rishis discovered this in their meditation. So yoga postures
are easy to learn, they manifest”.


“When we observe children from all over the world, whether they are
from America, Africa, India or Latin America, they perform similar yoga
postures.” Once children grow into adulthood, these postures need to be
consciously and regularly practiced to achieve the goal. “As we grow up,
our awareness naturally matures and these postures begin to have a
deeper and more profound impact in our spiritual and mental body. When
body and mind develops, the impact of the yoga poses also changes. For
example, children can put their big toes in their mouth, but they cannot
keep their attention at one point. By practicing yoga postures and
guided meditation, we can get the best of both worlds: maintain the
suppleness of young body/youth and increase the awareness of a mature
mind.
