Feb 4th – 10th

A lot of yogic drama has been circulating the web sphere and I don’t know about you but I simply don’t allow myself to get riled up in it. Every community has its share of problems, we are all humans and yogis are just as susceptible to misconduct as the rest of them. But personally, yoga for me is more than just a group of individuals who enjoy the same experience. Yoga is about MY experience. And as I watch life unfold around me, I keep my focus on my breath, my body, and what I can do to become a better individual.

The yogis and yoginis that post for YIOM have dedicated time out of their day each week to share with you their own experiences. Let’s go explore the stories shall we?
