“Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb across my head…”
I always smile when the Beatles “A Day In The Life” plays on the radio, and halfway through the song, a ringing alarm clock blends into the “cadence” of the piano, signaling the pulse of a new day. How many of us just “fall out of bed” and literally stagger through the morning….
Would you like to become more flexible? Do you want to improve your yoga? Do you look longingly at other more ‘bendy’ yoga students?
I totally understand! It wasn’t that long ago that touching my toes seemed a totally impossible dream away… I used to wish my arms were longer! Today, not only is it easy for me to touch my toes, but as a yoga teacher I feel blessed to be able to teach others how to do this too!
One of the great benefits of yoga, in addition to increased strength and flexibility, is that it promotes the peaceful state necessary for us to go “inward” and establish a “mind-body-spirit” connection, nourishing our soul. Other forms of physical exercise require a great deal of external focus, with our mind and body ”engaged” with equipment and people around us.
