Some yoga classes feel easy and beautiful – you’ve eaten well before, you nail an inversion, and you truly connect with yourself when you lie down for shavasana. Other days are harder – you’re late for the bus, your arms feel like noodles, and you can’t let go of the day’s stresses. Luckily for us, life is all about balance, and the bad days are there to make us truly appreciate the good ones. But on those bad days? It can be hard to stay positive. So I’ve started pinning inspirational yoga quotes in various places (my apartment, my office, my phone) to give myself that little bit of extra help, that little piece of energy, to reset and move forward.

Here are ten of my favorite inspirational yoga quotes:
