Welcome to the first Yoga Carnival! What is the Yoga Carnival? It’s a fantastic way to bring together people who blog about yoga one way or another. Some of our bloggers will have yoga blogs. Others will have blogs on other topics that include writing about yoga. Not everyone here has a Bikram yoga practice, and that’s a good thing! This is your chance to get out and meet some new people and read about things you might otherwise not have known about.
For our first issue, we are focusing on My Yoga Experience. Bloggers were asked to contribute a post that had anything to do with a yoga experience. Pretty broad, right? Well, I hope you find the results interesting because I think you are in store for some fascinating reads. So grab some popcorn (or kale…whatever is your thing) and enjoy the ride.
1. Why Yoga Is Perfect for Solo Female Travelers: Yoga and travel go hand in hand. Whether you’re joining a pre-planned retreat or just building your travel days around yoga classes, yoga lends structure to travel and provides unique benefits to solo female travelers. Here are four reasons why yoga is perfect for ladies traveling alone.
2. Zen Steps – From Oak Tree to Bamboo; Part 3: A broad look at some of the non-physical changes that can occur as a result of having a Bikram yoga practice.
3. No Excuses: It doesn’t matter what is going on in your life. If you simply go to class you will help yourself and likely inspire someone else.
4. “Losing” My Yoga Practice: What happens when you’ve been practicing for a years and your yoga practice starts to “slip away”? I started my yoga journey off with a bang, practicing six times a week, advancing in the postures and releasing the ugly parts of myself that were no longer serving me. But eight years later, I don’t practice as often as I did in those early days and my postures don’t look as beautiful as they once did. Can one “lose” their yoga practice? The story of letting go, transitioning into a mature practice and knowing that it’s not always about the postures.
