Moving through my practice today, I couldn’t help but think how I watch my students practice these same poses. Warrior II is a particularly difficult pose for me, and one I often encourage my students to push themselves further in. This brings me to my musing for the day…
When you address conflict or challenge (physically in asana, or in a “real life” situation), you may resolve it or strengthen yourself.
And, once you’ve moved through one challenge, there’s another that presents itself. The cycle continues.
That is why yoga is an ongoing practice. Life is an ongoing practice.
You can’t expect life or your asana practice to be easy. There’s always a hurdle to jump over.
Jumping each hurdle allows you to advance on to the next one, to grow.
Be present with your challenges, so you can move forward.
