Strengthening has always been one of my favourite aspects of yoga – thus I was drawn to ashtanga. While I thought running had made me strong, through yoga I discovered that I had only strong legs and endurance. Not entirely bad… but in spite of my mindless weights routine, my upper body and core were pathetic.
In the coming weeks I will post my experience with the strength aspect of yoga. My favourite poses and ones I sucked at… what I did well and not so well. It took me many years with yoga and stepping into other disciplines to figure things out. Maybe you are a lucky one that has this body intelligence already. I sure didn’t and perhaps my experience will help you. Please share your insights and experiences as we go.
