Your Body is Not a Machine

When you come to the mat and your body won’t cooperate, remember these three things:

1) Your body can only relax as much as your mind

2) Your body can only do what it can do that day, that moment and in that pose

3) Your body does not deserve harsh criticism for its limitations

Set the tone for your next practice by:

1) Having no expectations

2) Dedicate your practice to the concept of “ease” and “non-judgment of self”

3) When the mind wanders, bring it back to the breath

Happy mat journeys!
