Yoga is an ancient practice, carefully passed down through the ages from generation to generation. Fortunately, the modern world can access its time-tested wisdom today. At its best, yoga's postures tone the body and sharpen the mind. Now, yoga has become a popular and mainstream approach to exercise, relaxation, and even the quest for enlightenment. As an added advantage, modern enthusiasts can tap into technology's innovative tools.

Positive personal influences

Establishing your personal approach to yoga calls for finding a qualified teacher, one to whom you can easily relate. A talent for articulating sequences coupled with a sense of humor are qualities to look for in an instructor. You'll also want to work with someone who will respectfully push you to take risks while being gentle in those inevitable times when you may fall short of your goals.

Joining a group class may force you out of your comfort zone, but doing so will reap many rewards. As Yoga Pod explains, at the right studio, a like-minded community of yoga enthusiasts are likely to welcome you to the fold. Many studios host events, performances, and teacher training sessions, so look for one with which you click, and that you feel inspires your growth.
