aparigraha - the attitude that’s described in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra as the ability to accept only what is appropriate.
You make a conscious choice not to take all you could, not to move into the fullest backward bend your body can manage, because you see value in holding back; you value the health and integrity of your body more than the glory of a deeper backbend. You value the primary function of the pose—the opening—more than the final shape or form of the posture.
