On some days, getting on the mat becomes a little harder, especially when you are tired, or when there are a thousand things more important that yoga. For me, I find it extremely hard when my mind is in a mess. It just doesn’t want to quieten down.
My own practice does get compromised from time to time, whether it’s for legit reasons, or just excuses (mostly the latter, unfortunately). Each time I notice myself slipping off my regular practice, I hear my teacher in my head “Practise. Commit. Trust the yoga.”
This quote from Elena Brower (one of the most inspiring yoga teachers/writers around) always serves as a good reminder:
I hope you guys do the same too.
