Been a while.... nothing profound to report. Practice today was good, been feeling very strong lately despite lingering cold, pushed the edge of my strength. Really enjoying the fluidity it's bring but was tired after practice today. Inspired by Kino to keep pushing the boundaries on and off the mat, so easy to accept where you are, when you practice every day.
Last week my back was more bendy than ever for two days. It was a real revelation, oh so that's what it feels like to have a bendy back. Was very close to Kapotsana heels solo. My back was not so bendy today, difficult to even get to my toes. However, I don't care, it's just interesting to observe the changes and the lack of caring. That shows a more important development than grabbing my heels, although I know I will be chuffed when I do that too!
What is interesting though is regardless of how flexible my back is Kapotasana is no longer the psychological, emotional ordeal it used to be. Definitely went through something there, am grateful to my practice for the journey and enjoying coming out the other side. Next week a workshop with Paul Dallaghan. Am excited to be practising with others and getting a new perspective from a teacher who is new to me.
