Restricted Area

Have you ever been in a yoga pose where found yourself counting the seconds when you would be told to “release” the pose and move onto the next? If your answer is yes, I can tell you that you are not alone. Every yogi has his/her moments of disliking poses. The asana (physical postures) practice teaches us how to move past our comfort zones and play with our limitations instead of feeling confined by them. Our breath is the tool that gives us access to those areas of our bodies that feel confined allowing them to transform to wide open spaces. When we calm the mind by following the inhale and exhale of the breath, the body will take a hint from the mind’s calm reaction and inevitably follow suit. Try this the next time you find yourself in a challenging “restricted area” pose: breathe in open doors, breathe out closed doors. Your practice is a chance for your to explore what opens you and what closes you. Have fun exploring. Self-study πŸ™‚ See you in class,
