This year, after 15 years of yoga practice and transforming my body, I found myself hitting a plateau. Though my practice regularly involves power moves like jumping forward into Crow Pose and holding Warrior Pose for a long time, my muscle tone seemed to be stuck on autopilot: never decreasing, but never really going to that next level, either.

Even if you are an avid fitness enthusiast and keep a consistent training regimen, the likelihood of you hitting a plateau with your progress and energy level is an absolute. Your body’s energy systems works hard on adapting to the present energy output. So when you have done the same thing or been stuck in a rut for a while you will slowly feel the body change less and less frequently. Maybe it shows up as actually weight gain, or a lack of energy. The bottom line is: you need to change it up, shock your body, and give it something to chew on!
