This post will be just like Slayer's "Raining Blood." Short and brutal:
Do less on your yoga mat.
If you're banging out 5-6 day weeks (if you're doing it, you know what I'm talking about), I dare you — I dare you! — to take every fourth week at half power.
Pattabhi Jois would say, "Practice practice, long time. All is coming."
He didn't say, "Practice, practice all primary series, as hard as you can, long time. All is coming."
So you have my permission to unclench your butt-cheeks every four weeks.
That is all. Carry on.
