Whether you are taking your first yoga class or have been practicing for years, it's easy to get discouraged when you compare yourself to others. The key is staying in your own practice and focusing on what brought you to yoga in the first place. The physical practice of yoga is only part of the yoga lifestyle. Breath, behavior and attitudes towards yourself and others, being present and focused, and meditation are also part of the yoga lifestyle. So go back to the reason you come to your mat each day and you'll find what yoga is really all about.
