BEST YOGA BLOGS OF 2019

A recent scientific study shows that on any given day, your brain is bombarded with about 34 GB of data. This would easily overload a powerful laptop within a week. You might not shut down entirely, but you feel less organized, less focused, and far less inspired as a result. That’s why it is so beneficial to step back and see the world–and your life–from the broader perspective. I’m doing this with Swagtail this week. As a result, this post reveals our best yoga blog posts of 2019.

There are other great reasons for categorizing the material I covered this year!

  • You can more easily find a topic that piques your interest. This saves you mental energy and precious time to get what you need from our site.
  • Reflection is a skill that allows you to sustain high levels of success. When you take a look at all you learned here in the past twelve months, you reaffirm your commitment as a yoga professional and can fine tune your path forward.
  • You feel more competent and prepared to start your new year. These articles serve as a great resource to inspire and uplift you, as well as your yoga clients.

So, without further ado, I present to you the best yoga blogs from our site this year!
