Day # 23 Take The Challenge

 

There are four parts to a yoga pose. Getting into, aligning, holding and coming out of the pose.

I use to think I was “all that, and a bag of chips,” when I thought I mastered the pose. Until one day, the instructor tried to adjust my alignment, and I lost my balance.

I was comfortable with holding the posture as is. Introducing proper alignment felt like starting all over again.

How many times have you felt like you mastered something, only to find out you have returned to the baby Bhudda stage of enlightenment?

Alignment gave me new insight. I gained energy because my muscles were being used more efficiently, and I prevented possible injury.

What doesn’t challenge you, won’t change you.
