Obstacles in regular practice of Yog

It has become common trend to say that "I go for Yoga classes".

Many often demand about daily classes so that they can come for the class and practice it.But my question is why you need daily.You can practice daily at home, once you learn it or you can practice other days when you don't attend the classes.In this way you will get used to practising alone and come with many doubts in next class.
So this way you learn more.

Yog has to be practised alone not in groups except in class which cant be avoided.When you practise alone you are more aware of your body,breath and your thoughts and hence later leads to meditation easily.

Yog practise has to be continued through out your life, as a lifestyle.There are many of us who discontinue once the teacher is out of sight which seems to be as if one is practising for the teacher not for themselves.

There are many reasons for not practising it-

  • Sickness
  • Doubt about one's own practise
  • laziness
  • Invalid knowledge
  • Lack of concentration
  • Pain
  • Over eating
  • Useless talk
  • Undisciplined act
  • Bad company
  • Over exertion
  • Excessive sleep or Lack of sleep
  • Self destroying emotions like-lust, anger, fear, greed, hatred, jealousy
  • Never ending  material desires
To over come these obstacles according to Bhagwad Gita  moderation in all or right balance in all activities destroys all pain and sorrow.

Yog Guru and Sage Patanjali has mentioned us to be friendly, compassionate, and avoidance of  feeling superior than others.These kind of thinking help us to be more accepting ,develop trust and have more faith on teachers and patience.

So Sadhaka or Practitioner to overcome their problem should work wisely and active life in harmony and moderation and mostly they should be single minded, and devoted practise.
Hari Om  Tat Sat
