My goal I have set myself is making me more competitive. Not with anyone else. I’m not naive, I know I will never hold plank longer than a 5 year old! I just mean that I am battling with myself. I need to be mindful that I don’t push myself when I’m shaking or sacrifice my breath in order to achieve the asana. This is not yoga.
I feel I’m learning more and more about what yoga is not. Im learning the practical and logical application of yoga. Yoga slowly eliminates the negative and toxic things in your life and leaves behind what we are all born with, purity and health of the mind and body. The physical asana practice gives you a way to access that every day, as the the cool kids say on instagram #yogaeverydamnday.
Then I wonder also, by achieving my goal is it just nourishing the ego and helping it grow?
I’ll have to let you know in a few weeks 😉
