A large appeal to the yoga practice is the growing awareness of one’s Self. One’s body, mind, emotions, etc… and quite possibly of how “alone” you are, if you happen to be a person of color.

Let me start off by saying that my "sneaks" are suggestions, and my suggestions are just that... suggestions. I say this because the mind is just like the body in that it is unique to the individual. Ya know, "different strokes for different folks" and all.
Admittedly, I was clueless about "the Yogas" when I first started my practice. And yes, I thought yogis were a bunch of head in the clouds, peace and love spewing, white middle-aged herbivores.
“Meditating time. Okay… here I go… I’m going to sit here, in stillness, in silence and breathe. Free my mind… Breathe. Release what doesn’t serve me… Breathe.”
