If you find that you are falling away from your regular yoga practice, just come back to it. Some of us may stop and start many times, but with consistent experience, we ultimately find the sense of balance and inner calm that is the true essence of our intent. “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Maria Robinson
