What does advanced asana mean to you?
Asana as the physical practice in yoga.
Advanced asana doesn’t mean necessarily being in a challenging arm balance, inversion or other kind of ‘fancy’ pose. Advanced asana to me means being aware of my body, accepting the limits of my body at that moment and honouring my body’s needs.
All those good looking photos on social media give us a wrong picture about being advanced in yoga and we think if we are not able to twist, stretch or bent even deeper in a pose we are not good enough in yoga and we are not doing it properly. But yoga comes from the inside and it’s more about how we feel in a pose. Those photos also keep us from trying as we afraid of failing or we think we are never able to achieve it. But through a consistent practice and finding the balance between trying and letting go, you’ll be surprised.
So, come and join me in my classes at Pure Health and we will explore together some familiar and unfamiliar poses – feel the strength and sweetness in your practice.
I’m looking forward to seeing you all
