The Yoga-Money Connection

Considering personal finance through favorite hobbies.

My last two interviews with authors who write on personal finance also had something else in common—both practice yoga. Both Kimberly Wilson and Brent Kessel use yogic ideas about balance, looking inward, and tranquillity to inform their money philosophies.

It's not a coincidence that I chose them to feature. I also practice yoga, which is why I was drawn to these two writers. One thing that struck me from both interviews is how the topic of money, because it's so all-encompassing, can be viewed through almost any filter—including, of course, hobbies other than yoga.

Do you notice your own ideas about money shaped by your hobbies?
