Then there are other thing.
Yoga makes you realise just how slutty you can be. Going through each pose I remember I performed some of those in bed. My favourite is the crocodile. Don't ask.
When you are able to get your toes close to your face you notice slight changes like how your feet are turning into Hobbit feet. Since when do I have three hairs on my left instep? Also I need to shave my legs...
The meditation part is great for organising your thoughts, most of the time I'm making to-do-lists for my blog. Though I think I'm meant to be foccusing on something else, it still works, I feel centred by the end.
Overall, by doing yoga regularly I have learned to "let go" (that's a chant you will hear constantly and then it will be inside your head when you venture off into life and something happens, you will think "let go") Yoga seeps into all areas of life.
