I love this TedEd talk!
Whether it be yoga, personal improvement or learning an instrument, it's applicable for all types of practice.
We can step onto our mat and do (or don't do) the same moves we always perform then wonder why our practice never changes. This eventually leads to boredom and/or frustration. How can you expect something to change if you don't change yourself? The yoga we do truly has the ability to change your body and your life, but you have to be willing to do the work. Practice effectively and presence what your current weakness is. Connect with it. Play with it.
This can change your practice.
Remember, effective practice:
- Is consistent
- Is intensily focused (presence the task at hand)
- Targents content or weaknesses that lie at the edge of one's current abilities
