When I first started Meditating I could hardly sit still for 3 minutes let alone 5. I’d manage to go through the motions for 5 days or so and then something would happen and I’d fall out of it.

I started teaching Yoga before I had ever been to a Yoga class. I headed off to India to learn how to teach it before I had ever been to a Yoga studio or even knew one Yoga teacher.

You might think a Yoga Mat is a Yoga Mat. Well that’s what I would have thought way back when I was just getting into Yoga.

It’s never been easier to start a Yoga practice with so many tools online and Yoga studios opening up everywhere.
