“Indian yoga is a solitary activity, with about as much glamour as brushing your teeth.”

Being in a certain place determines our experience of reality.

In this case, the practice of Yoga in US, is not the same that practice it in Latin America, Europe, Scandinavia or –off course- India.

As I see it, everyones knows -or expects- that,  in India -or for Indian people-, Yoga means something completely far away from what, due to our experience of it, yoga means for us.

Probably is not even an “exercise” and, for sure, being a yogi doesn´t have to do with the idea of having the perfect yoga mat, the perfect yoga pants or the most beautiful  space/spa/paradisiacal beach surrounding us…

I invite you to read THIS  super interesting article (written by an Indian writer), that goes deep into this subject, telling us beautiful and encouraging things that helps us to keep a cool head, even if we are in a hot yoga class.
