Each of the blessings Mogel discusses has its yoga equivalent. Both Judaism and yoga offer spiritual teachings that can provide guidance for daily living. It is not necessary to be a practitioner of either in order to appreciate the simple wisdom they each offer.
Everything you have done has led you to be the person you are now. You couldn't be anyone else.
Deb’s words also apply to comparing yourself to others while on the mat, something you truly should never do! Each person is physically different and will do a yoga pose based on their own anatomy and level of physical strength and flexibility. Trying to do what your neighbor is doing is a sure fire way to lose your concentration and can easily lead to injury. Appreciate what you can do now! If you practice over time, you will lead yourself to change, and likely take pleasure in your growing strength, flexibility and grace.
