Intent: This time of year we make grand plans to change ourselves. But we often do this without actually looking at what we need to shed or what is holding us back. We simply look at what we want to add, looking at the things we think we need to start doing rather than what we need to stop doing.
In your practice explore what will stop you from progressing. What thoughts or habitual patterns get in your way? How we do one thing is how we do everything. How we work on our mats is how we work in life.
