Perfectionism, on the other hand, is full of self-criticism and judgment. Begin to cast judgment on your pose, your practice, or yourself as “right” or “wrong,” and the ledge you’re on can expand into a never-ending plateau of self-doubt and fear of failure. When you aspire to create “perfect” poses, you miss out on witnessing the presence of each moment; positive or negative. Precision is about process. Perfectionism occurs when you believe the myth that there is an endpoint in your yoga practice.
