There is no question about the fact that yoga is beneficial to your body physically, mentally and emotionally. The practice is so beneficial that many experts are recommending it for many purposes. However, before you pack your bags and head over to a yoga vacation, you need to learn some of the basic moves of the art.

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! :>

If you are struggling to keep your balance in Warrior 3, stop fighting for it, and instead think about floating into it. Place your fingertips on the ground under your shoulders and then gently float your arms by your side, filling and lifting your back body with your breath and abdomen. Then float your torso on your standing leg as opposed to sinking in to it.
Yoga sequence :
