In search of the perfect asana…

In search of the perfect asana, trying hard – do not forget to breathe! Labor without breathing makes it difficult to understand))

In search of the perfect asana, do not forget why you started practicing But don’t think, feel. Understanding will not come from the head. ⠀

The one who, in search of an ideal asana, puts his buttocks on his shoulders, has not yet pulled his head out of his buttocks … Put your pride under the feet of health, and not vice versa.

In search of the perfect asana, don’t look at yourself in the mirror. It will not help to avoid injury, but listening to the sensations of the body will help. ⠀

In search of the ideal asana, do not condemn yourself for anything (here, the hands are weak …), except for the loss of concentration on the sensations that occur in the present moment. And follow this.

In search of the perfect asana – do not praise yourself for acrobatics: many children at 12 years old can take any yoga pose better than the Master of Yoga. At yoga, we are not in a circus or in a ballet school: only now, children cannot understand this.

The search for the perfect asana is just an excuse. But this does not mean that we “do it for the sake of the lessons themselves” – we do not work for the sake of fatigue itself! Why then? Ask YOURSELF.

In search of the ideal asana, “think” not with words, but with sensations: listen to them, taste them. Again and again send a request for sensations again and again, to all corners of your body.

In search of the perfect asana, don’t think. Thinking in class is like telling a dirty joke in a principals meeting. You lose useful work every time you tell it. ⠀

In search of the perfect asana, freeze in the asana. Any movement – the benefit is reset to zero, start the countdown from the beginning. Hold static asanas for at least 100 counts (2 minutes), and preferably 3-5 minutes.

When looking for the perfect asana, remember that many poses are good, but few are even better.

In search of the perfect asana, evaluate your progress not by the mirror, but by the sensations after class. Severe fatigue – went too far. Lethargy – unfinished. Something hurts – look for a mistake when the real injury did not come. The nose does not breathe well – the wrong asanas were done. My head is spinning – as if there were mistakes, either the body was heavily slagged, or the load was excessive. I really want to eat – again there was a mistake somewhere, perhaps too much dynamics, “aerobics” in the lesson. I want to lie down and lie down all day – there were too many or too difficult exercises. I want to go and love to change the world and my life and the lives of those close to me for the better – the right effect!

In search of the perfect asana, don’t look for… an asana. Look for a feeling of happiness, strength, energy. And the ideal asana will come, here it is! Although from the outside … maybe she does not look perfect – so what ?!
