What does that word conjure up for you?

For a lot of people, it will conjure up an image of a contorted body in some kind of unimaginable pose.  Maybe for others, a cross-legged Buddha-like, serene figure.

Yogi’s are mindful; introspective; and definitely vegetarian.  Right?

I don’t fit neatly into any of these models – and I’m guessing you don’t either.

The truth is: Yoga is more than a set of practised postures, deep breathing, or eating vegetarian food – though all of these may come into it.

Yoga is a way of life; a continual practise; a way of striving to be the best, most authentic you.

I practise the physical poses – or asana – of Yoga to strengthen my body; the breathing exercises to strengthen and calm my mind; and the philosophy to try to make sense of the world around me.

This blog is all about the simple, intentional way of living that I continue to seek through Yoga.
