How to know when yoga is working for you

You know yoga is working for you when:
  • You don't have tantrum when your usual teacher can't teach your class and you don't know the cover/substitute teacher.
  • Your usual spot in class has been taken and you don't give the unsuspecting person in it the hairy eyeball.
  • You no longer clock watch when doing your 5th Sun Salutation.
  • You don't notice your toenails need painting in Pashimottanasana.
  • You no longer try to keep pace with "Mr / Ms Go-Fast" practising next to you.
  • You can miss your yoga practice without berating yourself or sticking pins in your eyes.
  • You no longer flick the V sign when someone cuts you up on the way to class (or - at least - not on the way home).
  • You don't leg it to the toilet when your most feared pose is coming up (pose runner).
  • You no longer think about what you're cooking for dinner in Savasana
  • Your body no longer aches when you practice yoga; it aches when you don't.
