I don't think people realize how yoga and prayer (Y & P) helps build your strength. Outer and INNER strength. I don't think people realized the sense of empowerment you gain with regular practice. That feeling when you can dig deep down inside, tap into "that something" that allows you to maintain control and composure during difficult times.
Well if I wasn't a believer before, I am now! Something happened to me on Thursday (those of you close to me already know) and I believe my reaction would have been TOTALLY different if I did not have my stored strength from Y & P. Things just happen in life and often times they come unexpected. Its the way you react to those unexpected things that make all the difference in the world. When you are pushed into your purpose? Allow it to happen, embrace it and GROW!
