Is there a fixed definition of being a yogi? What exactly does a yogi mean anyway? Find out if you fit the pre-requisites of being a yogi in this brand new post! <:
(pssst.. there aren’t any pre-requisites anyway! but still, take a look!)
I wish more people would realize this.
It’s the same in the running world: I have friends who finish their first race and proudly tell me about it. Then they brush off their accomplishments… “you’re a real runner, so my 5K must sound like nothing to you.” Actually, it sounds pretty amazing to me whether you’ve just run your first twenty minutes with walk breaks in between. It sounds amazing if you’ve run a mile or three point one or six point two or thirteen point one, or twenty six point two or more. If you run, you are a runner. Don’t think otherwise because someone has run further than you- that’s just silly. I may be a marathoner, but I was once a beginner huffing and puffing my way through a sixty second running interval, feeling like my lungs were going to explode from my chest.
If you run, you are a runner.
If you practice yoga, you are a yogi.
Why so many qualifications on everything we do? More supportive communities are needed. No one should ever feel sub par: whether they are a beginner or an expert. Everyone is welcome.
And I totally agree with that! Any sport is a sport so long as we do what we love and stay active! :>

Don’t let weight loss run your life. Yes eat healthy. Yes workout. Don’t miss a chance at spending time with friends or having a relationship because you need to workout or you worry about eating out. It’s hard not to obsess sometimes but not obsessing can get you amazing things and to amazing places.
What the scale can’t tell you…
weight… its just a relationship between you and gravity.
"My coach said that you can train and put in the work, but if you’re not confident you’re not going to achieve. The mental stuff is all that can hold you back; you can train really hard but you have to stay mentally tough, mentally focused and be mentally confident about what you’ve trained for and what you’ve set your mind to. "
"Dont think about what can happen in a month. Dont think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be! "
