Have you ever regressed in your expression of a pose? I think that’s part of the never-ending frustration and beauty of yoga.
It’s never finished. Never over. Never complete.
Urdhva Muhka Savasana has been feeling stilted during my home practice. Which is strange because I don’t think my shoulders have been this open since before my surgery in 1999. This may be part of the issue. With my shoulders stronger I no longer overuse my traps and upper back. I have to remind my body that it’s changed. In other words I need to get out of the past and into the the now.
I’m not that story anymore. I think that it’s so easy to get caught up in a story of what was or what can be instead of the present.
But I suppose that is why it’s called a yoga practice and not a yoga perfect.
Keep tryin’ keep strivin’.
This is yoga. Right now.
