With regards to @kinoyoga recent post about flashy yoga poses and how the actual practice for them are often solidarity, full stumbling and falling.
She did mention there's no one to cheer you on, to encourage you.
You have to motivate yourself to pick yourself up, find that steady state of mind and keep on trying over and over again. . .
My journey began not too long ago with a horrible tight quads, hammies, hip flexors, psoas, back and trust me, I did not start yoga being able to touch my toes in a forward fold.
I was sweating so much in downward dog and even in a seated forward fold. . .
Backbend was my kyrptonite. Till date, it's always a humbling journey each time I get myself onto the mat on backbend days. The desire to keep working on invert and hips mobility but I know I need to give extra attention to the back. Shoulder opening and thoracic mobility isn't the favourable routine but in the recent months, I embrace this tightness, showing tender loving care and slowly began to work on it. . .
There's no substitute to the two pillars of yoga practice.
Abhyasa and Vairagya. . .
Abhyasa being uninterrupted practice for a long duration of time. Devotion towards your practice get the ball rolling!
It's definitely a challenge to allocate time for your practice, however, as with everything else, it is primarily a matter of setting the priorities right. . .
Non-attachment being letting go of the outcome.
We have the full control over the actions that we put in towards achieving our goals.
However, we do not have the control over the outcome of our actions.
When the results are not in our favour, calmly analyse the whole situation and hopefully doing a better job the next time to achieve the projected goals.
Letting go of emotions: competitiveness, disappointment, anger and disheartened. . .
