10 Yoga “Rules” for a More Enjoyable Practice

Life is full of rules. But in a yoga studio, do the regular rules apply, or is it a space of escape where we can just live and let live? Does the practice of yoga completely suspend judgment? Well, yes and no. Even though yoga is fundamentally non-judgmental, that doesn’t mean that teachers and practitioners should embrace an anything-goes attitude. It is in our empathy, our passion, and our need to learn that our practice develops; it is respect given and received, compassion given and received. It is the connection between our actions, our feelings, and our thoughts that makes yoga yoga. Without this connection, yoga would just be a series of movements which, honestly, would take all the fun out of our practice.
