If you study yoga, gita etc, you are an adhyAyI.
If you practice your skill at them, you are an abhyAsI.
If you practice them as a way of life you are an AcArI. (achaari).
If you practice and teach them you are an AcArya. (Acharya.)
What do you study? Practice your skill at? Adopt as a lifestyle? Teach?
eg. Many women are experts in pAka s’Astra – cooking, and kuTumba pAlana – taking care of their homes.

I am a yOga abhyAsI.
I am a blog-AcArI. I practice blogging!
