"Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured." ~B.K.S. Iyengar
I thought I would get to touch my toes by month's end by doing this challenge. Instead, I am learning a lesson in how to be still, and how to slow down. I don't like still and I don't like slow. But I guess these ways of being are sometimes necessary. I have been doing a ten-minute seated meditation for the last several days--not the power yoga I imagined I would. Still, I feel like I am working new muscles, and maybe changing a little bit--my back doesn't ache as much and my legs flop open just a little more. And then there is my mind--which has, at some miraculous moments, felt connected to my breath. So connected that I felt like my body was a kite and if a strong wind came I could sail through the air.
