Many sports activities use a tool: skis, a bicycle, perhaps even a car, a batter, a ball, a skateboard or what ever.
We yogis and yoginis, we have our bodies (and a mat).
We must care for our bodies as this is the instrument we work with. Good food, enough water will keep the body healthy. Well-groomed hands and feet make the body most beautiful. Lotion for the skin to protect it from drying out makes the skin smooth. A relaxed face, an upright body reminds us of treating us well.
We have knowledge about our anatomy, what to do when injured and sick.
We give ourselves enough sleep, so that we are relaxed.
And I will pamper my body with a sauna on Thursday. It's very good for the body and the mind.
What do you do for your perfect body?
