How to begin to build a yoga practice.

  1. Trust that learning isn't linear. 
  2. Know that nothing replaces consistent, intelligent practice. 
  3. Seek out an environment that optimizes YOUR learning.  And if it doesn't exist, create one.
  4. Find a teacher that takes your practice seriously, and the way to do that is to take your practice seriously. (but please see number five!)
  5. Accept that pretending to be serious takes WAY too much effort and doesn't work anyway. Better to just pay attention.
  6. Make it personal. Because it is.
