There is no right or wrong way to do yoga postures, per se. Modern understanding of human physiology and anatomy has helped to evolve yoga asana into a more functional practice, less focussed on how a pose looks in favour of how it feels in and serves our bodies, at any given moment. We are aiming for asana that is steady and easeful. This doesn’t happen overnight, especially if our bodies are stiff or hypermobile or minds busy or blank. But in time we may begin to become more steady and easeful in our postures and in life. Tune in to what the body is telling you in a given pose. Perhaps wriggle a little, or breath into the pose to explore how it will work for you. However, don’t do a pose just because it is desirable, and never work into pain.
