yoga is universal

The yoga community has been abuzz about how yoga is being portrayed, ranging from sexy to nude.  It has left this yogini blogger’s head spinning and wanting to share her opinion.  Yoga is universal with different meanings for everyone. For some yoga is an exercise for flexibility or for releasing stress, or for those like myself it is both a mind and body exercise connecting myself to a higher power.

Yoga is different for everyone because we are all unique individuals with different needs that should be respected.  I see yoga as way of life from a spiritual connection, keeping me fit and balanced to instill values into my life.  Being the free spirit that I am, I take in what I read and learn to incorporate in my own life.  I applaud and celebrate what yoga brings to our lives.

    Hi, Carrie.

    I have a kind of “live and let live” attitude towards all the different types of yoga. But I know that even some of my good friends in the blogosphere are upset by some of the directions yoga is taking.

    Personally I believe that each person will find the yoga that’s right for them at that time in their life, as long as we work to keep all their choices out there in front of them.

    I agree with Bob’s “live and let live” philosophy! It just upsets me to see judgment passed on someone’s personal, individual practice. If it works for them, great! 🙂

    Carrie, I love your blog. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
