Take a fresh approach…

kidyogi2Each time you unroll your mat, adopt the attitude of a beginner.  Treat each exercise as a brand new experience.  This helps us to shed anxieties about ‘being good’ at posture work.  It doesn’t matter if you have been practising yoga for 10 weeks or 10 years, each asana has many layers – some extremely subtle – accept each time you try something to be open to the feelings, stretches and releases that come.  Try not to have a prescribed activity or expectation – allow your body to ‘be’ and see what happens.  You may well be pleasantly surprised.  It’s another way of bringing you back to ‘you’!
