One of the best things about yoga (if not THE best), is that after each practice, you really do grow and you really do transcend into a higher self. You become enlightened by your own abilities and the miracles of your amazing body. You learn, you discover a lot about yourself, and you gain a great deal of humility. When all of this radiates from ourselves, we put peace into our lives and into the lives of those around us.
THANK YOU, COME AGAIN
Check back in to your first yoga class, or your first yoga video…who was it that introduced you to yoga? Why did you go? Why did you go back? Why do you keep coming back? And the next time you don’t feel like practicing, check back in.
Getting on the mat can be a challenge sometimes. No worries, it’s normal and it’s okay! We all have those days. Just remember, you’re going to feel so good when it’s over.
“I have never ever had an experience where I got on the mat and got off of it and thought, ‘Ugh…I wish I didn’t do that today. I would be in a much happier place if I didn’t spend the last hour stretching and breathing.’ It’s never happened. It may always be a drag getting on the mat, but never ever getting off the mat. Once it’s done, it’s amazing.” -Seane Corn
When you need a little push, check back in, and check back in often; and then be grateful because you took the time to take care of yourself.
