Home (self) practices are so crucial to building body awareness. It's also an opportunity to listen to your body in a profound way.
When in class you have to follow the agenda that the teacher has choreographed. Although there is intentionality in what they are doing, it doesn’t mean the practice was catered for you, your body, and where you are at that day. During a self-practice you have the opportunity to truly listen to your body and what it wants.
