To feel the benefits of yoga, you really have to make it a regular practice. Â Like anything in life, you reap what you sow. Â And the more you put into your yoga practices, the more you feel the benefits. Â You canâ€™t expect to harness inner calm and peace without working on it. Â You canâ€™t expect your shoulders to release from up around your ears without consciously and repeatedly letting them slide down your back. Â It is when you have worked hard and put the practice into your body that doing yoga feels so good. Â At first, coming into these shapes, moving with our breath as the guide and taking a more internal approach feels awkward and uncomfortable. Â As our bodies adjust and our perception shifts, we begin to feel comfortable and confident practicing and the benefits start pouring into our lives. Â Suddenly, the old ways we had of carrying ourselves give way to the new habits weâ€™ve created in our bodies and we see changes, physically and mentally.
Basically, what Iâ€™m saying is: Donâ€™t get discouraged and keep practicing. Repetition allows the magic to rise.
