I am in a yoga teacher training all-out bootcamp, butt-kicking weekend. Practice #3 of the weekend with some kind of crazy pose that I can't even begin to contemplate is coming up tomorrow. What was I thinking when I signed up for and PAID MONEY to do this???
Yoga means union. It connects body, mind, and spirit. If you're a runner, like me, it's mile 16 and it only takes 2 minutes to get there (as opposed to 2 hours). Just breathe.
When I attempt some kind of crazy asana (pose) that there is no way my tight hamstring-ed runner body could even think about doing...and I get there, somewhat, with no judgment, just breathing, it's amazing. It's Holy Spirit--wow--God is with me amazing.
So that is how I'll be worshiping tomorrow morning.
(With a dose of Advil just in case).
