"Practice ease rather than force..."

via @czilka

Injuries aren’t part of yoga. Injuries are part of “not yoga.”¬†Yoga, just like life, is ours to create. It’s ours to create yoga that’s struggling, striving, pushing and forcing; a life that reinforces the strain and difficulty in our bodies and minds. It’s also ours to create a yoga that is calm and peaceful. And a life that is capable and easy in any setting, under any challenge. - Michael Taylor

Indeed, pursuing the better, be it in fitness, spirit, or creativity should take no effort, but a willingness let our attention takes us there. Or, as Simone Weil said: ” We have to try to cure our faults by attention and not by will.”
