Inspiring Yogis

Inspiration is an important ingredient in the motivation to continue practicing yoga. There are many different ways to find inspiration, and in this section, we draw upon interviews of yoga teachers, community leaders and dedicated students for sage advice, experience, wisdom, and learning. This is an easy and fun way to explore what influences your motivation and passion to return to the yoga mat. We hope reading these interviews will allow you to feel connected with the practice and the community of yoga.
