Most Important Yoga Advice

The wisest thing my teacher ever told me was to put my practice first.

She encouraged me to create my work schedule around my practice schedule, even if it meant turning down good opportunities.

Of course she was completely right: when I fail to make space for my personal practice in favor of teaching more classes, I lose energy. I get sick. I get depressed.

Practice is our time to receive, to replenish, to fill our cups.

When we neglect that, we’ve got very little left to offer the world.
