Alignment instructions tend to tell you in which direction to adjust yourself, but generally not how far to move, at least in part to keep things simple enough to understand easily. Such directional cues can encourage a student with a rounded lower back over time to recreate a natural lumbar arch in response to the teacher's instructions to “roll the hip crests forward,” or to “tilt the tailbone up.” However, when such a directional cue is applied conscientiously but without good body awareness, it can eventually take a student past the point of balanced alignment to the opposite extreme of over-arching the lower back, and perhaps even lead to arching the upper back in poses that call for a neutral spine.
22 Jun 2015 » Disengaging inquiry from achievement
Why practice difficult asanas, if the practice of yoga is to be something other than an ego-driven, goal-oriented endeavor? Because in the act of doing something we don't know how to do, we are forced to become more present in the moment, and gain an opportunity to break out of our habitual and unconscious patterns. However, the danger is that this worthwhile undertaking of increasing consciousness through the practice of new and challenging poses deteriorates into simply feeding our ego.
