Practice, and All is coming.
“Practice, and All is coming.” Sri K. Pattabhi Jois said that, and it
has been incredibly valuable to me since I started my journey into yoga.
I had many “forced” hobbies as a child (piano lessons, competitive
swimming, skiing, horseback riding, etc.), but I found that I never
really stayed with any of them. Now I’m not very good at any of them!
Yoga, on the other hand, I have stayed with for years and I continue
to break through plateaus.
Each pose presents its own unique challenge when I attempt it for the
first time. I never, ever stress, feel fearful, or anxious when I find
a new challenging pose. I’m filled with excitement and a sense of
wanting to accomplish the pose. I believe you should respect difficult
poses, but do not avoid them due to fear.
I get excited knowing that I will be traveling down another poses
path. Some paths are short, but many are long and winding.
The pose above, Karandavasana, looked absolutely impossible when my
teacher introduced it to me, but with time, practice, and respect, I
was able to perform the pose. I take the exact same philosophy with
each new pose I learn (and it is working out great!)
I gained my confidence through my practice and started to believe that
there aren’t that many impossible things, if you fully commit to them.
Have great practices !
