Yoga Isn't Just Bliss

Jason Crandell talks about his own discovery of yoga and why it's not meant to be all bliss and joy.

Jason released this video last week, talking about his childhood interest in the human condition, his discovery of yoga (shocking spoiler: it was to get credits to graduate), and the office work element of being a yoga teacher.

"I felt like I could look at all the ingredients that composed my experience of myself in a way that was honest and open and non-judgmental."

So the next time you are judging yourself for not being "yoga" enough, remember to give yourself "the open space to be who you [are]." The full spectrum of human emotions inside you were meant to be there for a reason.
