Working a lot in social media, i received some interesting messages about yoga over the last days….
One idea specifically came up in different words, that surprised me a bit…
Means, the focus in practising yoga lots of people seem to take…
Some of the messages included:
– yoga is very difficult
– you do yoga, do you also meditate?
