A few days ago, I attended the Yoga Journal Conference in Boston ( More on that later) and was able to absorb some great information.  Here are just a few tidbits and added thoughts:

  • Yoga is one of the most cost-effective ways ( in regard to time and money) to take care of yourself  psychologically, physically and spiritually
  • Yoga is a trend, but not a fad ( kinda like sliced bread)
  • More than 15 million people practice yoga in this country
  • The ease in body, peace of mind and connection to Source ( Higher Power)  are carried  off the mat and into the real world, after the yoga class is done
  • Yoga is about honoring your body and cultivating compassion–releasing the need to be competitive with yourself or others

And a great T-shirt that was for sale for yoga instructors, simply read:
