'Be in the moment' when practising yoga. Try not to let the mind wander but stay tuned into everypart of the body so that mind and body can meet together.
I've often heard teachers say 'forget the last time you did this pose, be fresh in today's practice'. When we really stay in the present, that's when we can go deeper into the pose, and also keep our attention on the balance of the body.
Firooza Ali, senior teacher from Mumbai taught a workshop today that really reminded us of this. Very inspiring!
As Iyengar said "The highest point of yesterday should be the lowest point of today".
