forget everything

here’s something to try if your lockdown practice is feeling mechanical or boring or unproductive.

come to all fours and forget everything you know about cat pose – this is going to feel more like a ‘swamp creature’ than a cat

tune in

let your hands and knees spread into the ground – amphibious, spongy

notice breath moving towards you – away from you

start moving so that your spine floats in the space between your head and tail

do anything your spine would like you to do, however undisciplined, wonky or maverick this feels

as you are only making movements your body is calling for – you’ll need to stay alert

apply this to all other yoga postures
