Practice is Everything

It’s called a practice because it’s not perfect.

The other day I put up a photo of my meal prep Sunday. My caption said, “If I can do it, you can do it.”

Some friends of mine made fun of me. That I was nuts to not only think this, but to write it in a post. But what they don’t realize is that I literally couldn’t do many of of these postures. I owe it to writers and photographers who have captured others’ practice and made books and articles available so we can continue to learn from each other. I owe it to teachers who are fearless in putting new and exciting challenges together that are outside the yoga practice box. And lastly, I owe it to my will for pushing my body & my mind for listening and the trusting the bond between the three.         Mind Body Exchange, Baby.

The goal:

Hold Downward Dog and try to grab a hold of and bind alternate hand and foot. It seems utterly impossible at this moment. But, just like anything else.        You give it effort and it gives in.
