Myth #1 – There is only one kind of yoga practice and if you don’t like it, you’re not a yogi.
Let’s say you’ve tried Vinyasa Yoga and it didn’t fit you. It doesn’t mean that you won’t enjoy Hatha Yoga or Restorative Yoga. And there’s Ashtanga, Bikram, Yin, Kundalini, Hot and Iyengar. Which is for you? What are you looking for?
There are many types of yoga that you can enjoy. Beginner’s yoga alone has 9 kinds and each of these practices has its own style and way of practicing yoga. Find that specific type of yoga that will fit your lifestyle and your desires. It’s simple as that. Plus there are thousands of yoga teachers out there – each of them has a different approach as to practicing their type of yoga. Try and try until you find the “one”.
A yogi has no type. It has no qualifications or limits. Anyone can be a yogi. Just open up yourself and welcome the lifestyle change – oh yes, if there’s one thing here that’s certain about yoga – it will change your life.
