Reminder: Yoga is all Practice and Practice makes Progress
By Melanie Kiss
Practice makes progress. This is a mindset to maintain throughout your practice on your mat, and carry with you elsewhere. As humans we tend to be quite impatient with ourselves. Constantly putting too much pressure on various compartments of our lives in turn stunting our growth. We need to apply this constant reminder to all aspects of our lives ”practice makes progress.”
When on your mat, notice if you get frustrated. If you are not able to accomplish the full expression of a certain posture. Maybe when you have been sitting in meditation for 15 minutes yet it feels like an hour, pins and needles have already made their way to your feet, and you cannot wait to get up. This is when we need the reminder. The positive self talk. It's okay, fifteen minutes are better than none, and just making it to your mat is already an accomplishment.
