Avoid strain and injury by always ensuring that you perform appropriate warm-ups and preparations before engaging in Asana practice.
Simple things like stretching your muscles and hydrating effectively before starting your third limb should never be neglected since these things will support you with maintaining your oath of Ahimsa.
It is important the get your blood flowing and your mind in-tune with your muscles before attempting to bend, hold, flex, and extend them in Asana practice.
Remember, please, that body-mind-connection requires listening to your body and effectively communicating with it in every moment as opposed to forcefully demanding compliance from it in order to cross a pose or activity off your to-do list.
Cultivate Love, not war, with your body: get consent from your body first, and prepare it to accept what you are requesting of it (if it is right to proceed), before transitioning it into any desired positions.
And, as always, just keep practicing, aligning, and moving forward.
