Today Mercury enters Virgo. This aspect is a good opportunity to bring greater attention to detail into your practice, from the way you place your mat in the room to the alignment principles of your body placement on the mat.
Correct alignment allows the body to develop harmoniously anatomically and ensures that you avoid injury or pain. Heighten your ability to be attentive by focusing on small but important detail such as the position of your feet and hands, your drishti, your breath, and your mental focus. Increasing your ability to pay attention to these details increases your ability to concentrate (Dharana) as well as bringing a sense of ritual and reverence to your practice.
This is all about a 'no fuss' approach using minimum energy to achieve maximum results. Use your energy wisely by activating your bandhas and channeling your inner power to create space and lift in the body.
You may want to consider using props to enhance your alignment and giving the body extra support.
Virgo is a practical earth sign, she is grounded and concise. Mercury is the great messenger god, he is rational and direct. Make use of this energy to bring integrity to your asana and meditation experience.
