I began practicing yoga 4+ years ago as a way to stay fit, flexible, and healthy so that I could maintain my type A lifestyle. At that time I was working in the chaotic world of local media sales which further accelerated my type A tendencies.
Actually, I did not find yoga. Yoga found me. The studio I chose to practice at fit conveniently into my hectic schedule, offering classes five nights a week at 8:30pm. This gave me time to rush home from work, feed my family, get the homework underway, race to the studio, lie down on my mat, and wonder if anyone remembered to feed the dogs.
