i know i am in balance psychically and physically when i am consistently practicing yoga, be it a few poses a night or a full sequence in an hour long session.
i am an alcoholic and when i drink i, obviously, cannot practice. however, when i am in a better place and am able to say no to a drink (or 10) consistently for long periods, my practice becomes an in important part of maintaining that flow. i can feel so much better in my mind and body when i do asanas rather than downing a couple of bottles of wine.i believe deep down, that yoga will save me by forcing me to save myself.
