Hatha Yoga – How to Deal with Physical Weak Points? – The Isha Blog

 

Here’s a short article and video from Sadhguru that helps us understand that we should not be too focused on our physical limitations but rather submit totally to being in our sadhana/yoga practice.  This is so reassuring for us aging Yoginis  who are dedicated to our sadhana!  The Blessings are constant in different ways at different points in our lives.  Thanks Sadhguru for your wisdom and for sharing with us and thanks for the Isha Foundation and volunteers that deliver so much media as virtual Darshan with us.  Namaskaram.
