It may be hard for you to imagine this but I am not naturally strong, neither emotionally nor physically. The journey of strength has been one of the most fundamental and life-changing lessons of my yoga practice. At first it felt utterly impossible, the idea that a weak small girl like me would be able to do something as powerful as a handstand.
But slowly, over years of practice the impossible became possible. Along the way a whole series of thoughts, feelings and other, more hard to define elements of personality and life shifted as well. As I embodied the strength I was searching for in my yoga practice in my life off the mat, I slowly evolved into a different person. The process didn’t happen overnight, but in some ways it did feel like “suddenly” I was able to do a handstand.
Surrender to the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method with careful emphasis on the traditional vinyasa method and have fun along the journey. Experience the integrity and purity of the Ashtanga Yoga practice and be prepared to sweat.
