Creativity is defined as the act of bringing new and imaginative ideas into reality. Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, in his book, “Flow” suggested that creativity can often be seen in a few different situations and on different levels. The layers that make a creative person originative and artistic run deeper, in more complicated patterns which then seek a creative outlet.
Creative thinking is merely being able to explore multiple possibilities to create the ideal, singular situation. Be it in the form of artistic expression or technical programming, being creative is what sets you apart.
Yoga and creativity have a relationship that dates to many centuries ago. Ancient Kings sought out yogis for advice and strategy. Some stories are even reported where they have sought advice for political or even military strategy. This showed that they had a unique way of thinking and comprehending, allowing them to offer their inputs.
Yoga is a practice widely known to expand the mind, rewire the brain and rejuvenate the body. This makes it a powerful tool to incite creativity and a shift of changes that transforms you to become your creative best.
Keep pushing. Get on that mat and get that flow going!
