Mind, Body & Spirit
with Rosie Acosta
Yoga Journal sat down with yoga and meditation teacher Rosie Acosta to chat about her daily yoga practice.
Q: Why is yoga part of your daily ritual?
A: Although I started my journey to yoga through philosophy and meditation, I took my first yoga asana class and I loved how my body felt afterward. I felt strong. One day a week became two, then three, and soon I was going every day. Now I practice asana to connect my mind, body and spirit.
Q: Why is tea important to your daily routine?
A: Tea has been a part of my life since I was a kid. My grandmother would make us tea, and we would take time to talk as we let the tea steep. Because of those memories, there’s an emotional connection and comfort for me in having tea. That’s something I can do every day, no matter where I am in the world.
Q: How does tea support your yoga asana practice?
A: Turmeric with Meadowsweet & Ginger Tea is one of my favorites, especially after my asana practice or a morning workout. With a warming and subtly spiced taste, it helps reduce post-exercise inflammation. Watch the video series at yogajournal.com/mindbodyspirit
