I think many women feel fragmented in their lives because they are so busy and they’re pulled in so many different directions. I think if they could make a commitment to themselves to go to yoga class once a week, to learn how to practice, to learn how to do pranayama or to learn how to do meditation. Then if they were to commit to doing ten minutes of asana a day, even just that small amount can change things around and they start perceiving their lives differently. So a small amount done every day, day after day can go a long way, it can make a huge, huge difference.
