A Beginner’s Search for the Yogi Within
I’m a yogi…and if you have sat on a mat and practiced yoga at any level, you too are a yogi! Don’t let anyone tell you differently, yogi can refer to a master of the practice, but more commonly it is anyone who is a practitioner, and that’s you and me! So I’ve practiced yoga on and off for years, never with any focus until a couple of years ago when I injured myself while running. I rediscovered yoga with a true vengeance for correcting the wrong I’d done to myself running. However, much of my focus in this blog is general information helpful to the beginner yogis. I truly hope that the posts are helpful to your growth as a yogi, that you’ll discover new parts of yoga and want to dive deeper into your personal practice.
