How do I do that pose he’s doing? How do I get the shape she has?
Sometimes the question is more important than the answer.
It’s pretty usual around the yoga room to hear people asking “How do I do that pose he was doing over there?”
If you want to pose, or do anything at all for that matter, there’s an even better question to ask. It’s,
“How do I do me, in my body?”
You might see someone do a pose. And then spend months, maybe years, working to get yourself into that pose.
You might see someone live a certain way. And then spend months, maybe years, working to get yourself into that life.
After all those months and years, you might have a copy of someone else.
It’s not really what you want. But it’s that first question that got you there. You want capability in your own body and life. The real question you want to ask is about you. How do I get into me? How do I make a shape, and a life, that looks and feels like me?
This question leads to the right kind of work. With a good amount of this work, you become the best in the world at doing you, at shaping and creating your own life. Nobody can be better.
The result is some serious pose ability, but it’s not the poses you’re after any more. The result is also some inspiring life ability.
People will ask how to get into your pose, and your life. And you’ll help them not to do that. You’ll help them into their own body and life instead. Because that’s something you have, and something you have to share.
So how to get there?
Do yoga. But not just any old yoga. Do your yoga, your way, in your body. It’s not the pose that counts. It’s you!
