Here are a few tips to make your yoga sessions exciting again:
GO TO A YOGA CLASS

Classes not only give the perfect vibe for practicing yoga, but it also gives you access to a community of other yogis to motivate you to continue! Ask your local studio for a class at your level.. whether relaxing, moderate or intense.
Yoga can look daunting when we are inundated with pictures of complicated poses, but don’t let that stop you from doing your practice! You should take yoga at your own pace, never push yourself to do anything you aren't comfortable with!

With consistency, you’ll eventually be able to achieve those intimidating poses as well!
