Looking for a new and elusive asana. By Diane Ashfield
If you regularly practice yoga you’ve probably mastered all of the basic asana, you’ve become best friends with most intermediate postures, but moving on to something more advanced might feel a little bit scary. Maybe you are like me and are on the lookout for something that’s halfway between intermediate and advanced that doesn’t involve standing on your head or balancing on your arms! Maybe you’re tired of the same old poses and want something new.
It’s easy to become stuck in a rut in our home practice. We often perform the same postures because we feel safe and confident doing them, but sometimes these poses become so familiar to our bodies that we go into auto-pilot, we don’t even have to think about what we are doing – and that gives the mind the opportunity to wander. Your mind could wander during practice.
