Traditional goal setting doesn’t work for yoga ambassador, Sanchia. Instead, she focuses her energy on feeling empowered: allowing herself to practise with no pressure. “I don't set expectations because it’s not a reflection of what's going to happen or how it might feel—and it’s restricting,” she says.
Sanchia knows not every day offers the chance to hold a perfect headstand. “That very first forward fold in the morning can feel really tight, like a crisp paper bag. Or like there’s cobwebs on the back of my kneecaps, my compass just feels off.”
But when there’s an opportunity to go there, she takes it. “I can feel a gear change and the excitement grows,” she says. “My limbs feel lighter, my elbows feel smooth, like oiled gears. I’m more in tune and everything starts to point in the right direction.”
