The time invested in practice should be worth the time invested.
A zillion yoga classes does not necessarily guarantee progress, it simply ingrains whatever patterns we are practicing.
If we practice a pose leaning a bit to the left, our body responds by leaning more to the left.
And the rest of the day you tend to lean to the left.
Practice doesn't make perfect, but it does make permanent.
Ingrained movement patterns are more obvious with a skill like piano playing.
If a pianist practices the same piano mistake over and over, that mistake becomes ingrained in the sequence of notes they play.
They repeat what is worth repeating.
They don't necessarily practice longer, they practice better.
For yoga to be powerful, sustainable and personal, we build a yoga toolbox of tricks to practice better.
This all starts with taking ownership of our practice.
And this ownership, this fine balance of curiosity and awe, gets better with, you guessed it, practice.
