Our yoga practice helps pull us through those hard times. We would not, hopefully, skip brushing our teeth or our hair - even during these stressful times. Why would be put yoga in a separate category? Isn't it just as important in your life as having clean teeth? What about a clean and calm mind? An open heart?
Our yoga practice is similar to building a brick wall. Each day that we come into practice, we put another brick on that wall, getting a closer glimpse of where we are headed and just how big this experience really can be. Yoga is like the other things in your life, in order to get there, you have to keep moving towards the goal and putting each brick down securely.
