Listening to Your Body is Important, But So is An Experienced Teacher
If you practice yoga, you’ve probably heard the entreaty, “Listen to your body.” It’s good, sound advice.
When you embark on any physical practice, it’s important to know and respect your body’s limits. Those limits can change over time, of course, but tuning in and listening to your body and what it’s trying to communicate to you each time you practice is essential not only to your body’s health, but to the growth of your practice. How else can you really know the effects of an asana?
