Reading: off the deep end?
“Remember it doesn’t matter how deep into a posture you go — what does matter is who you are when you get there.” Max Strom
Great reminder of our aim in asana (seat/posture), which is not to max out, but rather find more balanced effort. Patanjali’s Sutra 2.46 guides us to balance stability/steadiness with ease in asana. Never forcing and maintaining some calm for the nerves via breath, focus, alignment, etc.
