If You Teach a Sarah Yoga...

Back in January, I started attending Burn Athletic, a studio in Raleigh. I took a few classes, including yoga.  I realized two things: I loved it and had no clue what I was doing.  So began my yoga journey, which I've equated to the adult version of "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" (still my favorite kids book, ever).

If You Teach a Sarah Yoga...
If you give a Sarah a studio, she will want to learn yoga.

And once she tries to do some yoga, she will realize she has no idea what she's doing.

So she'll take a Foundations of Yoga course.

Once she's taken a Foundations of Yoga course, she'll want to practice at home.  So she'll buy a yoga beginner's kit, just to make sure she's really into it.

My first yoga mat - the cheap kit from Target!
And since she's working out, she'll get some yoga pants.  And then a few more. Yoga pants can be used for all workouts, after all.

Now that she knows what she's doing in yoga (at least more than before), she'll start taking the m'bala classes.  Those classes make her sweat. Sweaty yoga means sliding all over the mat.  So she'll buy a yoga towel to put on her mat in class.

She'll continue to take classes, up to multiple times a week!  Her husband will encourage her to buy her own yoga mat.  Not just the starter one, but the good one she's been researching.  One you don't have to use a yoga towel with!  At first, Sarah thinks he is joking, but she doesn't argue.

Me and my smelly yet glorious mat.
 So she buys her yoga mat.  It's smelly, yet gloriously sticky. But she's still sweating, a lot.  Now she doesn't slip all over the place, BUT her mat is now getting gross.  So now she'll need some yoga mat cleaner.

Now her mat is clean and smells like lavender! But taking the big, glorious mat to class can be a bit cumbersome.  It's a heavy mat and likes to roll around in the car.  So, of course, Sarah will need a mat strap or carrier for her yoga bag.  Preferably one she can also put her spin shoes in! (Sarah has yet to tell Aaron about this current need.)

Soon Sarah will have what she needs to continue her yogi journey.  Except more yoga pants.  You can always buy more yoga pants...
