I have been trying to do a little more each week but just don't have the drive to practice yoga daily. Is that okay or am I wasting my time if I don't do it every day?

I practice yoga when it fits into my schedule...at most, that's 3 times a week, and when I get busy, I skip the whole week!

Hi Nancy-YAY for you! I've always heard that something is better than nothing so just keep on and you may get to where you have the time and motivation to do a daily session of yoga.

Are you taking a class or working with a DVD?

I don't practice yoga but I'm a personal trainer and think yoga is awesome, even if you don't do it every day. I know practiioners who say you should but you still do yourself a world of good getting it in less frequently so keep it up!
