After years of practicing Asthanga yoga it is seen clearly: there are these interim goals that can be reached and this creates joy. To hook the fingers the first time when practicing supta kurmasana is a highlight. So it is when dropping back the first time. These steps deserve to be celebrated, they deserve to be acknowledged. But soon the journey goes on. Next interim goal can be defined and so on and so on and so on. More than in any other discipline - the daily joy to practice is the goal in Ashtanga yoga.
