Life happens, and something hurts. A bump. A pull. An ache of mysterious origin.
As we approach our yoga practice with a physical injury, we have special needs. We need to take care to avoid pain. We need to avoid further injury.We need to be able to continue to practice.
We need to remember to know the difference between sensation and pain. This is a common direction in yoga. We always need to be aware of that balance.
Injury as opportunity? Yes. It offers a chance to pay special attention.
In time of healing we can strengthen our understanding of the limitations posed, but we can also discover other strengths. First of all, we can discover patience.
