Hi there reader! I’m Kristen. This is Edge of the Mat. It’s about taking the teachings and practice of yoga outside the studio. It’s about the questions that come up- the ones we ask because we’re human. It’s about looking for those answers on a search for meaning, happiness, and peace. Hopefully, it’s about finding grace. My yoga practice, and my continuing process of developing as a teacher, have made me think more deeply, feel more fully, and live more passionately- in certain moments- than I ever have before. I just knew this practice had the ability to enhance all the things I loved, to smooth out the rough patches on the road ahead. I wanted yoga to apply to the crazy, messy collage that is who I am, all the angles and aspects, the contradictions and the harmonies. And I think that as I muddle through, my insights might be valuable for other people looking at their own crazy, messy collages. I know I will learn much from you, reader.
It want this blog to be accessible to anyone, not just current yoga practitioners. Most posts won’t be directly about postures, but I will explain those references as they come up. Always feel free to contact me with your questions. If you already have an established practice- good for you J.
Thank you for your company on this journey.
Be well, Kristen
