Yoga challenges us to push boundaries and discover greater levels of mental and physical strength and flexibility. I loved this Yoga Journal post about “extreme yoga poses” — the photos are beautiful and inspiring and it reminded me that there is always something to work towards.

The point of “yoga challenge” isn’t necessarily to twist yourself like a pretzel (not all of us can, even if we want to!) The point is to go beyond our comfort zone. Daily practice is a wonderful way to stay strong and grounded but it can get routine.

Challenging ourselves to try a new class, learn a new pose, or meditate, are ways to increase the benefits of our practice. Only when we push ourselves can we discover our true capabilities.
