There is no doubt that learning yoga, or anything new for that matter, requires a sense of commitment. Even if you were to decide to learn how to play the piano, you would choose a teacher and commit to lessons and expect to spend time practicing if you want to learn the subject. Why should learning the vast subject of yoga be any different?
Today, more than ever, it is especially important that we include practices in our daily lives that promote health and well-being. B.K.S. Iyengar once said that a regular practice of yoga can help you face the turmoil of life with steadiness and stability.
My personal journey with yoga started at a young age when I spotted a pocket book at the grocery store checkout with a woman standing on her head. Inspired to teach myself yoga, my mother agreed to spend a quarter and buy it for me! Yoga, to some degree was always a part of my life since then.
