“Ashtanga is an amazing tool to manoeuvre life. It’s not always easy to use this tool. After all, who wants to do the same thing everyday? But, I can tell you from experience, I feel this same practice in new ways every day because I am not the same person every day, and my practice is relevant to how I feel each day. So it might be the same practice and movement, but each day feels different,” says yoga practitioner and teacher Maya Rao. She’s been practising Ashtanga for over 16 years and shares how it’s been her anchor through life and motherhood.
