Last week, I focused on the classical version from the Yoga Sutras of what constitutes the obstacles to practice. This Sutra can provide a framework for our individual explorations of what seems to impede our progress in practice. Here is one translation of the Sutra from Swami Satchidananda:

Sutra 1:30

Disease, dullness, doubt, carelessness, laziness, sensuality, false perception, failure to reach firm ground and slipping from the ground gained — these distractions of the mind-stuff are the obstacles of yoga.
