Of course, the day before I started, I saw this article by the New York Times. It's a good reminder that yoga isn't a competition. I've never considered myself a competitive person, but when the yogi next to you is rocking eagle pose without even a wobble, it's tough not to compare yourself to them and push yourself beyond your limits. If I'm going to make the full 30 days, I have to remember that this is only about me and how I feel.
Wish me luck!
