🌷🎯📝 Day 2️⃣2️⃣ of #YogaFeels with @cyogalife ➡️ High #Crow, #CranePose or #Bakasana variant 📝🎯🌷
This was on of the first arm balances I did and the first pose I remember I felt truly accomplished. I mean, I thought Crow was the sh*t hence, so was I!! Not long after, I started to see some ‘flaws’ on my form: arms a bit too bent, legs not active, hips too low, etc. I no longer felt accomplished but stressed because I had to improve sooooo much.... does this sound familiar? Have you ever fought very hard for something and, when you finally got it, the contentment lasted the blink of an eye, and you only saw the glass half empty? In today’s #practice I want you to celebrate those moments, those poses that once were cool/unachievable and now you barely value them anymore.... Crow is a beautiful pose, that offers tremendous teachings but, for whatever reason (social media inviting to do more extreme things?, people’s boredom?, human nature?...), I feel it doesn’t get that much appreciation anymore. And there’s a long list of poses like that! I love asanas, ALL of them, regardless of their difficulty level. I feel every pose speaks to you differently and has a particular message to deliver. To #practice only the most advanced ones would be to partially hear a conversation or read a book, you’ll only get half of the picture. Today is all about finding your inner child, be playful and remember those times when this arm balance, a seated forward bend or holding bridge brought pearls of sweat to your forehead and you thought ‘gosh, this is amazing!!!’... it still IS... Feel free to comment below about any of this if it resonates with you.... love and #keeppracticing.
