SERIOUSLY...DON'T TAKE YOURSELF TOO SERIOUSLY  

When it comes to yoga, there's a healthy balance between finging structure and discipline in your practice, but also not taking yourself too seriously.  It's okay to wobble in a pose, to fall out of something, to fart, to sweat, to laugh, whatever...the point is to have fun with your practice.  Of course it's good to challenge and push yourself, but also make sure to incorporate enough playfulness so that your practice is enjoyable.  An enjoyable practice leads to a lifelong practice.

Often times there there is a correlation with those that struggle through life...they also tend to to struggle through their workouts, "if I'm not sweating it's not working," "if I'm not pushing, I'm not doing enough."  Try not to be overly critical with anything, i.e. yoga, yourself, or your life.  Beware of the critical mind, we are so hard on ourselves.

This is exactly what I do. Spot on. Every time. My critical mind screams at me and holds me hostage. It's a tough one to crack.
