Shedding skin, like a snake, is the concept of detecting patterns. The first step is identifying patterns in your practice/workout. After that we try to evaluate the pros and cons of the pattern. Eventually, you decide if this pattern should be broken, modified or kept.
After you shed your skin you also learn to “let go” or “let go of letting go.” Letting go is a common concept in many disciplines, most styles of Yoga, martial arts, movement and even for high level athletes. Letting go is a decision just like holding is a decision and it’s a deeper level of shedding skin.
