Quotes have a powerful effect on the reader and I believe that surrounding ourselves with positive motivational messages can really impact our lives. Like chanting a mantra, we can reprogram our minds and truly change the way we see things and go about life.
Here are some of my favourite yoga quotes (I share them regularly on Instagram @yogaanandahum):
