My Instagram account was blowin' up with yoga poses last month for Grow Soul Beautiful's #YogaADay challenge. Initially, I participated, because I thought it would be fun and would force me to stretch daily, but during the process, I learned so much. It is so helpful to see the alignment of my body. Sometimes, I would look at a photo and think, "Oops. I better fix that." Other times, I was pleasantly surprised. For example:
|Chaturanga Dandasana // Four-Limbed Staff Pose|
Proper form = arms screaming
This is a deep twist! That's my right arm wrapped around my left leg. You try it.
|Bakasana // Crane|
I had never tried Crane before, but I was determined!
I am still at the very beginning of this yoga journey, but I fully intend to stick with it. Moral of the story: Do something you're not good at. Open your mind, be brave, go it a fair go, and you'll surprise yourself.
P.S. Happy 85th birthday to my Grandma Cristina! I love you!
