Ask a Yogini: Why do people practice yoga?

Students, friends, family and colleagues often ask me questions about yoga. I decided to post them here and try to provide some perspective on what I’ve learned so far. I will be making regular posts and invite anyone to contact me with a burning yoga question! I’ll try to answer from my perspective as best I can!

This is the next question asked by a good friend of mine. “Why do people practice yoga?”

 

I realized my answer was a complex one. Not that I can’t come up with a swift and simple answer, rather I think it’s difficult to translate an experience into language. I decided to try my hand at answering a small part of my attempt to answer this question using a video.┬áPlease enjoy
