One of the key targets of your practices is to remove what you no longer need.
Freedom is your nature and what you head for.
Don’t let anyone limit your freedom.
Any practice or step which increases your freedom is exactly in line with your evolution.
On the other hand, if you feel that a given action will lock you in and limit you, simple: don’t take it and step back.
Use this simple question to make the right choices:
“Am I increasing my freedom or limiting myself?”
To your Yoga!
