In terms of Asana, I am drawn to Ashtanga because I find it deeply meditative. Once learned, it is a self-practice. My focus is not directed at a teacher but at myself. The combination of the breath, Bandha and drishti, along with the count of the vinyasa makes the body a vehicle through which one can experience the inconsistencies of the mind. I’m also drawn to the athleticism required by the practice, having done lots of running, sports and mountaineering during my childhood. I also enjoy running, climbing and hiking and I do make it a point to have variety in my routine, to avoid the downfalls of repetition. I also pursue stillness deeply and consider my daily meditation practice to be the backbone of all my other practices.
What is your main practice?
