Often, I like to take my yoga practice slow. Really slow.

A no rush,
no hurry,
relaxed,
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.

Slow down.
Savor the movement, the journey, the process, the here and now.
