Yoga to get to know yourself better
This is your yoga practice. You are in control of your body, and you are more resilient and resourceful than you realise.
There is no finish line, there is no medal or prize for “achieving” the pose in the way you perceive is best. If you end up injuring yourself on the way to that end goal you may lose out in a much bigger way. If there is an end goal at all in Yoga, it is to be able to practice for the rest of our days.
