  ‘Stay in your lane. You don’t need anything from anyone else, try to be self-contained in your practice.’ Whaaat?  What does this mean?   I was sharing this concept with some of my Yoga students recently.  Being aware of “Now” alerts us to the reality that we have everything we need in this moment.  There is no need to fret about our limited physical flexibility–it will come with practice.  There is no benefit in being self-critical or even competitive with the student in front of you who may jump back from a standing forward bend directly into chaturanga with little effort.  Do you question your motives for showing up...
