What amazes me is the different paths that people have taken to find themselves on the mat. Whether it was recovering from a sports injury, to cancer, to a traumatic accident that left them with limited motor skills. Although people have come from different backgrounds, and have taken different paths– I do see a trend in people finding balance on the mat.
My path to yoga has been somewhat similar. I am still searching for balance everyday, but through my time on the mat I can find myself getting closer. Some days I can find balance easily, but some days I fight with myself to even get on the mat.
In the end, we’re all fighting for something. Whether it’s for balance, peace, wellness, or a “yoga booty” as one of the subjects in the article stated. The question is– is what you’re fighting for, worth fighting for?
