It’s been said that true wealth is control over your time and how you spend it.
Make the time to do the things you love instead of pushing them aside. That includes your yoga practice.
Those of us who are committed to our yoga practice and have continued to practice over many years - through all of the inevitable ups and downs - know that commitment means valuing our practice time as necessary, not optional. We schedule things around our practice instead of the other way around.
Sure, sometimes unavoidable circumstances get in the way of our regular routine, but we don’t let that turn into a downward spiral. We have committed ourselves to a regular practice and we maintain that as much as possible.
If we don’t take control over our time, someone else will. There will always be other things to do and reasons why we don’t have time to do the things we love. Our yoga practice is our lifelong commitment to our physical, mental, and emotional health. We need to value our practice and treat it as priceless.
