Let Go of Attachments

Wherever you are today is where you need to be.



Ashtanga ABCs Day 10 {Let Go of Attachments}


Challenge Pose: Parsvottanasana


Place the hands in prayer behind your back. Exhale as you square the hips and fold over the front leg.

This pose is triggering for me. This is one of those poses that beautifully highlights an old hamstring injury that I got in high school. If I bend without intention or hyper extend my knee, I can feel when I’m entering the danger zone. I had to learn that the only reason I would enter the danger zone is by not listening to my body, and being so attached to making the pose look a certain way (chin to the shin) that I’m pushing myself too far. The danger zone is called attachment.




I’ve noticed that some days, I am very bendy. Some days I’m just not. Be gentle with your body and kind to yourself by giving your body what it needs today. Let go of whatever attachments you have to matching some type of ideal in your mind. Wherever you are today is where you need to be.
