Yoga was kind of one of those things that caught me totally by surprise around the turn of the century when my mom talked me into doing a Rodney Yee yoga video with her over Christmas break. I was always one of those guys who loved sports, but could barely touch my kneecaps since my hamstrings were tight as dry wood–thank you genetics and years of neglect. Needless to say, I was shocked when I realized that even after years of lifting weights and running and playing tennis, my unnatural attempts at downward-facing dog left my arms shaking after a few breaths.
It wasn’t long before I bought my first Gaiam yoga mat, my own Rodney Yee DVD, and Yoga for Dummies book (a great place to begin, by the way) and started practicing on my own at home. Let me just say, yoga books are my weakness (well, books in general, but especially yoga books) and my yoga library continues to grow on a daily basis. I suppose there could be worse things to be addicted to…
During my last year of law school in 2007 I started Daily Cup of Yoga as my personal online universe to document my discovery of the yogic arts. I honestly never contemplated that I would see Daily Cup of Yoga end up on top blog listings let alone see my name make lists of bloggers making a difference in fitness, health, and happiness. How cool!
Although sharing my own insights has been great, over the years I’ve made the acquaintance of numerous online yogis and happiness experts who shared a similar passion and desire to share their thoughts about yoga and healthy living. I express my personal thanks to all these amazing guest contributors who continue to make Daily Cup of Yoga an informative and enlightening destination for the online yoga community.

Thanks for reading!
Good Things & Namaste 🙂
