25 Things That Happen When You Get Into Yoga

Don't even talk to me until I've done my sun salutations.

1. Your time on the mat changes your time off the mat.

Ujjayi breath has made its way into your work day, you set daily intentions when you're feeling stressed, and you really try to live out the mind/body connection in your day-to-day.

3. You have YOUR favorite props.

Don't touch my special, less squishy blocks and no one gets hurt.


4. You develop muscles you never knew you had.

5. You'll use any space to practice, no matter how small.

6. You realize that yoga sweat is very, very intense.

There's nothing like that feel of sweat streaming off your body when you tip back for reverse warrior.


8. You hate to admit it, but sometimes you still get confused by the strap.

How do I make this into a loop???

10. Nothing feels better than a good eagle wrap at the end of the day.

12. Your mat goes everywhere with you, like a best buddy.

15. Your collection of to-and-from class shoes expands rapidly.

17. You've found new and creative ways to flip someone "the bird."

20. Suddenly, spending tons of money on fancy yoga gear doesn't seem as outlandish.

Not that you can afford to do that. But the ~idea~ makes more sense.

21. Eating healthier has started not to seem so scary after all.

22. Not even work can stop you from getting a stretch in.

23. You totally grow closer with your other wonderfully crazy yoga pals.

25. But sometimes, you really ARE just there for the savasana.

Ahhhhhhhh. Namaste.
