Common Challenges in Yoga Practice

Honestly I feel like I could set up a whole Instagram account of 'yoga hacks' with ways to approach common challenges when you get on the mat. With over 20 years of experience working with the human body, I've observed some common challenges that people face. These challenges can be frustrating and yes, we learn a lot from what frustrates us, but also a few yoga hacks can change your practice and help you to progress. Our bodies are complex and fascinating, the body is so intelligent and the nervous system will opt to take the path of least resistance. While this might 'get the job done' in the moment it leads to creating patterns in the body that in the long term can lead to instability and injury due to poor form. So jump on your mat and learn a few little tips to empower you in your practice.
