I make videos so I can see where I need to work and progress in my postures. As I watch this, I think of the years invested... and how much time each step took. YEARS to develop the range of motion to just reach around and grab the foot with the proper hand grip, YEARS to work out the shoulder rotation... however, got to confess not as long once I found a skilled enough teacher to walk me through the proper alignment, and even a couple years to be able to hold myself steady enough to lift the stabilizing hand and grab the foot without toppling over. And even though I watch this pleased with the knowing of where I have come from, I still want more. I see this and think, 'I want to rest the back of my head into the bottom of my foot' and I know, I will want more once I've reached that milestone too.
I have been asked many times, through the years, 'don't you get tired of practicing the same postures?' And the answer is always, 'no.' They aren't the same postures because I am never the same... EVER! Every time it is different because every time I am different... there is no end point... only deeper. I have come to understand that I am only as limited as my own limited thinking. My relationship with yoga has become the number one most important relationship in my life because it is a reflection of the relationship I maintain, nurture and cultivate with myself and 'the' self. #yogaon folks! There is no bottom to this rabbit hole! #yogaeverydamnday 💪🏼
This little guy let me stroke him today, he wasn't poorly, just going to sleep, because I noticed him getting to know a lady pigeon a bit to personally just 5 mins previously 😉
