10 signs you’re turning into a yogi.

You don’t know how it happened. One day, you were a totally normal human who for some reason decided to try a yoga class. Maybe you wanted to finally be able to touch your toes, maybe you wanted a nice butt, maybe you wanted a calmer mind, maybe you wanted complete spiritual enlightenment. Whatever your reason for finding our way to that first class, the obsession seed was planted, and before you know it…

  1. You find yourself standing in Tree pose when you’re cooking the dinner/talking on the phone waiting for photocopies in the office.

  2. Your yoga mat is your carry-on bag when you travel.

  3. You schedule your day around your favourite yoga class – not the other way around.

  4. Yoga pants start to appear alarmingly frequently in your day to day wardrobe. In fact, you can’t remember the last time you even saw your jeans…

  5. All you talk about is yoga – and your non-yogi friends are starting to think you’re a bit of a weirdo for it.

  6. You’ll happily get up an hour earlier if it means fitting in a morning practice.

  7. Shaving your legs in the shower has become WAY easier.

  8. You turn on your ujjayi breath when rush hour traffic strikes. (Or at least, you try to remember to. Even yogis get road rage sometimes.)

  9. Your Spotify is increasingly filling with songs containing Sanskrit…

  10. You’re reading this post. Because really, who else would read a yoga blog in their free time? 😉

There you have it! Our top 10 ways you know you’ve been well and truly bitten by the yoga bug, and are definitely turning into a yogi. Are there any others you’ve noticed? Let us know in the comments!
