Triangle pose. Warrior 2. Or as simple as Tadasana.

No matter how โ€œ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ๐˜ท๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅโ€ your yoga practice is, you donโ€™t skip foundation poses. ๐Ÿ™Œ

In any form of art, from yoga to performers to cooks, you do not see the masters โ€œ๐˜ด๐˜ฌ๐˜ช๐˜ฑ๐˜ฑ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ดโ€.

A cook would still practice their chopping.

A pianist would never skip practicing scales.

A ballet dancer would still get into her plies arabesque.

A master of yoga would still get into their Downward Dog and Trikonasana.

Practicing is the most basic form of art because we love it.๐Ÿ˜Š

We might be โ€œgoodโ€ at it already, but we still want to get better.

We may want to share with others (as a teacher) how this basic work has transformed us (hence we still continue to practice).

Or simple, we just can NOT do it.

I canโ€™t live with a day without a Downdog.

Loving the humble art of the basic form because they are the foundation of everything.

And when we put our effort into them, the rest, or whatever we call it โ€œadvancedโ€ will take care of itself.

As summer ends (although in Singapore itโ€™s summer all year long!!), itโ€™s back to school time.
