The Generalist Method

The Generalist Method

When it comes to fitness I consider myself a generalist. I’m not sure that’s really a proper term but it kind of sums up my approach to my own physical health. I run but I’m not a runner. I do some CrossFit but I’m not a CrossFitter. I lift weights but I’m not a bodybuilder. I do yoga but I’m not a yogi.

So what am I and do I have to be anything at all?

Yoga - what it means to me.

Yoga - what it means to me.

Most people, me included, start yoga to get more flexible.  For me yoga isn’t really about that.  Flexibility is a beautiful side effect of regular yoga but it’s the journey towards improved movement that really connected with me.  It’s that journey that helped me figure out what yoga means to me.  It’s that journey that keeps me coming back to the mat and it’s that journey that I love and sometimes hate in equal measure. 

Make sense?  Nope, didn’t think so! It’s hard to explain but this blog is about what yoga means to me.
