Our society, of course, is fast-paced, product-oriented, and anti-relaxation, but haven’t we yogis already figured it out? Don’t we already live the antidote? We should just feel great! Yet who hasn’t wrestled with the worry that it really is just an indulgence?
You might be attracted to yoga because you think it is an effective form of exercise. Alternatively, you might be drawn to it as a method of stress relief. The fabulous news is that it works both ways!
Balancing in yoga poses always brings up anger and frustration. It’s natural to want to perfect something while avoiding the feeling of failure when you fall out of a pose. But, remember, if you are not falling (on or off your yoga mat), you are not trying.
