The value of community to an anxious yogi
When I teach yoga in studios, I enjoy hearing stories about how people came to find the practice. I love to know why people come back to the mat again and again, and the lessons they learn that help them to navigate their life.
From a self-conscious, back-row student to an at-home practitioner and yoga teacher, I’ve realised that being part of a community is what’s helped me grow the most. In fact, for me, the ‘goal’ of yoga is to belong to or create a community. I’ve also learned that the journey starts with connecting with oneself.
