Pause between pose

Don’t run through the motions when you exercise. Each pose in yoga has a beginning and an end. The pose begins before you even move, and it ends when you are back in a resting stance. If you rush from stretch to another, then it becomes a jumbled mess. You lose the appreciation of how your body feels after a move and instead all you can think about is what’s next.

The same goes for a conversation. Pause, speak and then pause. Listen for a bit after you have stopped, take a breath. What does everyone else have to say? Resist the urge to think about your next question or statement. When you are ready then speak.
