Are You Yoga?

By Nadine
Sometimes you read something so good you have to just pass it on. I never would have guessed that a post called Crack Smokin' Yoga Teachers would be the one, but I love this post.
Candice has hit the nail on the head with this one. There can be a tendency to feeling that to be "Yoga" you really need to do certain things or have certain attributes. Heck, that's one of the reasons I didn't become a teacher until last year (I felt my body was too big for me to be a Yoga teacher).
Yoga is so much more than those things. I used to meditate and do asanas every day. Now my personal meditation and asana practice is a bit more dynamic, ebbing and flowing with my teaching schedule. But I certainly feel more "Yoga" than I used to because overall I do more Yoga things and make more Yoga choices.
Overall, my life is more about peace and serenity than competition and anxiety. And, for me, that's what it's all about!
