Brenda on letting go of ego 3/6

I attended a class on national day. It was a yin-yang practice. The teacher set a class theme of going to only 80% of our strength and abilities, i.e. to pull back as it was a public holiday.
breathing easy, the poses came easy 
breathing heavy, ego was at work
Next to me, she rushed through her vinyasa and lost all alignment in a bid to enter the shape of a deeper twist.
When i started practicing, I was just getting into the shape without observing the space between breaths, and injuring myself in the process. I now practice with more consciousness. Of the breath, of the physical asana and to nourish my body with what it requires and not what the ego requires.
Practice safely so as to practice on.
