There's a lot going on this month, but we would hate to miss out on celebrating National Yoga Month! Yoga is an ancient practice with an amazing and rich history and "comes out of an oral tradition in which the teaching was transmitted directly from teacher to student." You can learn more from that history of yoga article, or other Yoga Journal articles. We also have several other resources below and, you can actually practice yoga (virtually, but locally) with various San Antonio studios. You can also learn basic poses online, or check out the many different YouTube yogis, such as Erin Sampson or Austin's own Adriene.
