As you sit, you should elevate your sitting bones and release your knees to the ground. To achieve this, sit erect on a chair or a meditation cushion. Your shoulder blades should relax and you sit back in your seat, hands facing up. Make sure you are very quiet and then allow whatever that comes up to do so.
Try your yoga practice as a beginner
By doing this you will be able to rediscover the motivation you had from the beginning to join yoga. This may be a challenge mostly for those who have already moved over to the subsequent progression in the pose.
But try as much as you can to connect with the asana at the basic level. This will help in rediscovering the practice for what it meant to you from the beginning.
Going Slow on the Asana
Going slow with the asana helps to cultivate and integrate your breath with the asana. While doing this you should concentrate on your breathing such that it begins before the asana. To deepen your yoga, do not rush into your position, just breathe first and then begin to systematically move into it.
Keep A Journal and Write About Your Practice
