Who do you look to for information and advice to advance your yoga practice?
Do you have a favorite teacher or advisor?
Do you like to go to classes taught by many different teachers?
Do you have questions that don't get answered in a normal yoga class?
Where do you look for the answers?
Do you read books or search online?
Do you observe the practices and advice of more advanced yogis than yourself?
Are you ever your own teacher?
It is becoming clearer to me that each person's yogic journey is unique. I must be true to my curiosity and motivation just as you must be true to yours.
As the ancient texts say: many paths that lead to the same goal - unity, oneness. Peace and happiness. Love and compassion.
Yoga teachers are nice, especially at the beginning of the journey, but we must make sure that we are nurturing our own identities, strengths and curiosities.
When we know who we are and what we want, a teacher's guidance grows tenfold in meaning.
This journal honors my ongoing experience with the practice, study and teaching of yoga.
