I feel like I should model good behavior as a yoga teacher 😜, especially when it comes to honoring my body in practice. I'm posting the second side of my flow for the #namastefit2connect challenge to show the modifications I chose in order to avoid knee pain in my right side. Some movement is a must to relieve & prevent the pain, but deep compression through the joint is unbearable. For this reason, I do not drop my knee in the lunge sequence and I transition to a non-flying lizard on this particular side.
I share this because, in the early days of my practice, I pushed for the picture perfect snapshot, often causing injury & exhaustion. I missed the point, and In doing so missed out on the benefits. I'd like to think I've learned better now, and I hope you'll allow me to share this little nugget...
Honor & love yourself for exactly where you are in this day, in this moment... for it is more beautiful than any one particular photo or pose. It is *your* journey, and it is picture perfect just as it is!
