“It is, after all, just yoga.” Jason Crandall on a YogaJournal podcast.
My favorite way to do yoga is alone and with an audio teacher. I can pay more attention to what and how I am doing something when I listen.
Not being a competitive person comes in handy with yoga. I don’t really care how good you are at a particular pose. I am happy for you if you do it well, but it doesn’t cause me any envy. The only person I compete with is myself. I mentioned this before in a yoga post, but I am learning how hard I can be on myself.
Today’s podcast was a toning yoga practice. But soft, gentle, and in the end he reminded us that:
“This is a yoga practice. And built into the yoga practice is a sense of ease and letting go, surrender and acceptance. . . . You’ve done what you need to do.”
Just one more reminder of why I need yoga . . .
