We often think of strength in an aesthetic way. True strength comes from the musculature that is deep inside the body and has very little to do with appearances. We want to develop these muscles so that they can work together and provide stability for any action we perform. Getting strong takes time and should happen in a safe and methodical way. It is true what they say, use it or lose it. Through a conscious yoga practice, we can unlock the power required to build the strength needed to propel us through our lives.
