Yoga for Strength
Yoga for Strength isn't about just doing poses to mindlessly get stronger. It is about directing your awareness and your effort so that you can apply strength effectively with less effort.
If you put your effort in the right place, you don't have to use so much of it.
Creating Stability for a Stronger Yoga Pose
For stronger yoga poses the first step is to create stability somewhere within your body.
- You might choose to stabilize your feet, heels and/ankles to give your leg muscles a stable foundation.
- You might choose to stabilize your ribcage and your shoulder blades to give your shoulder and arm muscles a stable foundation.
The better you are at creating stability, the easier it is to get stronger with less effort.
If you are having problems developing strength it may be due to a lack of stability somewhere within your body.
Notice where you lack stability,
so that you can work at creating it.
Then you can get stronger with less effort.
