yoga-teacher-training-one-month-immersionat-blue-osa

As I got ready to immerse myself in one month of yoga teacher training at the Blue Osa in Costa Rica, I found myself seeking out “all things yoga.” I picked up yoga magazines. Tried out new online yoga videos. Attended different classes around town. And started reading various yoga blogs online.

As the date drew nearer, I realized that the personal testimonials I found on the yoga blogs paralleled my own journey. I noticed that reading the words of fellow yoga enthusiasts fueled my inspiration and kept me motivated to continue deepening my practice. I loved hearing about their success stories. I empathized with their frustrations.

The online community of yoga blogs is vast. These days it can be hard to find blogs that share honest and interesting articles. However, there are a few gems that stand out.

The Top 10 Yoga Blogs That You Need to Follow

 

1. Yogi Aaron || Biography Of A Naked Yogi:

2. Your Vegan Boyfriend:

So when I got into yoga, I discovered really quickly that I wanted to make some life style changes. And one of them was to become a vegan. Vegan Boyfriend is a great blog with a lot of really easy to make vegan recipes. “We created this site because we care about the future of our planet and want more people to be aware of the health benefits associated with veganism. In addition, we want to share with folks some of our lessons and delicious recipes we’ve made.”

If you ever plan on taking a workshop with her, bring your journal, and open heart and the willingness to grow open and stronger for her workshops.
