Yeah… we’re going there and we’re highlighting articles all throughout the month of August. Welcome to our WTF Special Focus.

I’ve always considered myself a Bad Yogi. Far before joining the team at Bad Yogi, the mission of Bad Yogi always resonated with me. Sometimes, maybe a bit too much.

I’ve got to admit, there are a lot of things I am not well-versed in when it comes to all of the myriad of things there is to know about yogi tradition, culture, and more. For example, I had no idea what ayahuasca was before it started coming up on the Bad Yogi podcast. For two weeks in a row, in fact. I have a general understanding of ayurveda, but I’m also aware that my understanding only touches the tip of the iceberg. I’d pass a sanskrit test if I had to, but I still prefer calling it downward facing dog, rather than adho mukha śvānāsana. But my curiosity didn’t stop there. While I’m a lifelong yogi, I also love to mix up my workouts by adding in strength training and the occasional HIIT workout. So I also had interest in the health and fitness world, all around.

In short, there are all kinds of topics that confuse the F out of me, and I can’t possibly be alone. As such, we’re focusing this month on some confusing topics in the yoga, health, wellness and fitness worlds.

Check back in throughout the month of August
