When I stopped practicing Bikram, I had an aversion to using mirrors during a yoga practice. They keep you from connecting to your inner self, I thought.
Today as I sat looking at myself between classes I felt a shift. I realized that at this point in my life I need to look in the mirror more. That this will be a part of my practice. In another way I have stopped seeing myself and have been losing connection.
