Often, I like to take my yoga practice slow. Really slow.
A no rush,
leisurely pace that can vary.
Time to take each movement, each pose, to its fullest potential.
Where the movement in a transition is as important as a pose.
Time to connect with the breath, energy and muscles and adjust accordingly.
Stay a little longer, add something in, take something out throughout the practice.
The practice turns into a dialog and play of communication that is led by the body instead of directed by the mind.
Savor the movement, the journey, the process, the here and now.
