Reason #8 Yoga Makes Me Smile: Meeting like-minded friends

I’ll start by saying that I dearly love all of my friends, even the ones that don’t do yoga…

but when it comes to making new acquaintances these days I’d rather shop around a yoga workshop than at a local bar.

Of course meeting someone at yoga doesn’t mean there will be instant chemistry, but it sure is fun to meet others with the same interests.

What do you love about yoga?

  1. YES! I agree with you. While I love love love my friends who don’t get their ‘yoga on’ there is just something about having that commonality. An unspoken understanding of the yogini journey and often many of the same ideals and values. Totally get the workshop over bar thing…yoga studios have been my saving grace with all the moving around I’m doing. It’s comparable to travelling in hostels – most people are so friendly and open to new connections. LOVE.
