Am I resisting this moment? Or am I allowing it to be?

Like this blog from Salty Running, because the same applies in your yoga practice! When you’ve corrected your alignment in a given pose, yet feel that you are still resisting, breathe out. Turn your attention to your breath. Lengthen the exhalation, releasing control as you exhale, give in to the pose, allow it to just be. Honour your body where it is at today; not yesterday, 5 days or years ago. Honour the body that you are working with now, on the mat, in this present moment. Breathe in, feeling gratitude for the ease with which you can take a full unrestricted breath, then breathe out and come out of the pose.
