Take That Fear!!

(not me : source : Holly Mosier )

Yesterday I wasn’t feeling the led practice I was doing at home. I was falling out of simple poses. I couldn’t concentrate at all. So instead of giving up (which is what I probably would have done a few months ago), I put on some Adele and just did what my body wanted. Turned out to be Sun Salutations and attempting a headstand (Salamba Sirsasana).

I’ve never done a headstand (as an adult) and was thinking I’d fall and break my neck. Turns out I didn’t. The wall caught me. My arms supported me. It didn’t even hurt my sometimes bum shoulder. I was totally high on yoga. I was dancing and freaking my cat out. And since I was practicing with the shades up at night, I was probably entertaining our neighbors. It was perfect.

Now to carry this fearlessness into the rest of my life…

    Awrite! There’s nothing like an inversion to kick yourself into gear. Keep rockin’ out, no matter the pose or style!
