Don’t be too harsh on yourself if you cannot do what was told to you and cannot accomplish the yoga program set for you. Remember that your practice is an individual process. No one else is inside your body, so defer to your own judgment about what you can and cannot do. Over time, you will learn to discern the difference between something you may be afraid of or think you can’t do and something that is actually painful and possibly injurious. There is no hurry to get into any particular pose. You may be bothered by what people are doing but just focus on the instructor as if no one else exists as you do the poses. Don’t feel bad if you teacher corrects your postures. Hands-on instruction is the best way to learn good form. Try not to judge yourself harshly in comparison to what others are doing on their mats. Everyone is at a different place on the path. Stay light-hearted and keep your sense of humor. Laugh if you fall out of a pose, smile when things get difficult. Enjoy yourself.
