β€œYoga does not remove us from the reality or responsibilities of everyday life but rather places our feet firmly and resolutely in the practical ground of experience. We don't transcend our lives; we return to the life we left behind in the hopes of something better.” ~ Donna Farhi

@Regrann from @shiziks - Do you know the meaning behind the warrior poses? Read on to find out πŸ˜‰
❓DO YOU COMPENSATE IN ASANAS❓ #doyoucompensateinasanas
Warrior poses are a base for many standing, sitting and lying poses and there can be a 100 different compensations we can do when it comes to any warrior pose, but I will show just a few. Today we are looking into WARRIOR 2 or VIRABHADRASANA II and the most common compensations.
.
❓HOW DO WE COMPENSATE IN WARRIOR 2 POSE❓
When we want to go down deeper than our body is ready to go, we tend to stick our butt out, push our chest to the front, shift our weight forward to the standing leg and since our leg is under a lot of pressure we push the knee in and totally miss the important parts of this pose- stabilization, hip opening, balancing and strengthening.
.
❓ WHY DO WE COMPENSATE IN WARRIOR 2 POSE❓
πŸ’ͺ Lack of strength in our lags, especially hip abductors and rotators.
πŸ’ͺ Lack of strength in our core.
β­• Lack of stability in our pelvis.
🚫Lack of awareness of what we should do in this pose. 🚫 Lack of awareness of our pelvic floor and tailbone mobility. βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–
Warrior poses represent the strength we all have that can become buried deep inside and forgotten. Warrior poses prepare us for everyday life for ups and downs keeping us grounded, strongly standing on our feet.
βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–βž–
Compensations are not miss alignments. They are stages that most yogis go through in their practices in one or every pose. They depend on many things and can be various. They are workaround that we use when we come to a deadpoint. The difference between alignment cues and compensation is when you are compensating you are not WRONG. The goal is to recognize that you are compensating and learn how to move forward. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

Maybe the journey isn't much about becoming anything. Maybe it's about unbecoming everything that isn't really you so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

I know is not the best forward fold ever. 2 years and a half doesn't seem like a quick progress at all. I know my path to come will be slow, and I will have to put a lot of effort, perseverance and humbleness.
