The Paradox of the Practice

Only in yoga can you feel that you’ve really come a long way since you first started and yet feel that you still have so much more to accomplish. You get this feeling of fulfillment because you have conquered your fears and weaknesses, yet you humble yourself because you know there is always room for improvement. That is the beautiful paradox of the practice.
