How many of us subscribe to the philosophy of ‘no pain – no gain’ and apply it to various aspects of our lives?
Yet when we truly practice yoga, we learn to develop a relationship with our body, where we listen to what it is telling us and respond and move in a way that is deeply honouring. After all, yoga means union and how can we be in union if there is not a true respect for the body.
This means no pushing, no hardness, no pain.
With this, there is much to actually gain.
