In order to practice effectively, and challenge yourself to do better than you did before without breaking your commitment to ahimsa (non-violence), you must be able to distinguish between injury-inducing pain and growth/transformation-inducing discomfort.

This will ensure, that your practice develops effectively without setting you back further due to any added recovery time.

The general guideline to follow when conducting any practice is: if it creates harm, don’t do it. Be kind to yourself as you grow and evolve in/through your physical, mental, and spiritual exercises each day.

And, as always, just keep practicing, aligning, and moving forward.
