When did you start practicing yoga? I started practicing yoga sporadically during my freshman year of high school, but by junior year I was regularly incorporating meditation and yoga into my daily life. Were you hooked immediately, or did it take some time for yoga to become part of your lifestyle? In the very beginning I started yoga by watching youtube videos, just looking for a workout since I never liked going to the gym. I fell in and out of it for a while. I came back to the practice later on, and I guess the time was right for me to embrace the lifestyle. Everything seemed to click into place, and I say that in the most cliche...
