Advanced Practice?

What is advanced yoga? This seems to be the hard pose of the week, in some of my classes, including tomorrow morning at extendYoga. And in the classes of others. Getting the leg back and up is not easy for me, especially on this side. But it happens. Because I #practice. And because my teachers help me learn. ❤️🙏🏻

Some days it may feel like I am winging it. But mostly, I try to practice with wisdom to make sure this aging house of mine is feeling cared for and nourished, and I am actually inhabiting it, living and breathing in whatever shape, even in some of the crazy ones, like this pose. It doesn’t always happen. But that is the goal. That is the work. That is my most advanced practice. Being in this moment, in this body, whatever the shape.

What is your yoga? Can you meet yourself right where you are? And breathe. And maybe move. Or maybe just work on being present for each inhale. Each exhale. That is hard yoga. That is an advanced practice.

Stepping off my soap box.
For the moment.

Do #yoga. Your yoga. Whatever that is. Today. Every day.

Happy Friday, friends.
