Mind, Body & Spirit

with Rosie Acosta

Yoga Journal - - PROMOTION -

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
