This yoga sequence is designed for those interested in looking inward to learn more about themselves. When forward bending, the floor acts as an enormous boundary preventing us from falling into habitual patterns. It is by using that boundary to our advantage that we find softness and grace. To learn more about the yogic perspective on the ego read on here. As always, make any modifications necessary to feel comfortable in these postures. Keep in mind that many emotions tend to arise when forward bending; stick with the postures and you will discover tremendous truth and internal power.
