Your yoga practice as scaffolding
Consider your yoga practice
as a structure that holds space for you,
in which you can be as patient and precise as possible
with yourself in your poses, as practice for your life.
Your patience and precision are your truest creations;
providing the conditions for spaciousness internally,
manifesting as trust in your intuition when you can truly listen.
And while the asanas [postures] are of course
what you build within the supportive structure of your practice,
what you do in the interstitial spaces of your day is the real genesis.
“There are only three things you need to let go of:
judging, controlling, and being right.
Release these three and you will have the whole mind
and twinkly heart of a child. It really is that simple.”
-Hugh Prather, The Little Book of Letting Go
