In the personal journey of maturity, where we pass through phases of life and development, there are many dead ends — places we arrive with good intentions, only to discover disappointment or disillusionment. Yoga can be like that, and without an experienced guide, the opportunities at these types of crossroads can be missed for what they truly are: reminders to return to the essence of yourself and what is real.
Your yoga practice is frequently a rich source of paradox, where you are drawn toward mercurial states of vision and clarity, which often fade into discouraging realizations of the overwhelming vastness and complexity of the subject. Yet for every yogi, the journey starts with a seed planted at just the right time, with just a small nudge of guidance from an experienced teacher.
