A little progress pic, and a new blog post about how I got there. ❤️
The photo on the left is one I came across while sorting through files on an old computer a few weeks back. I remember taking that picture during a trip to Chicago about 3 years ago, and thinking that I had been much deeper in the pose than I was after seeing the pic on my camera 🙈🙊
Not that I was disappointed - this wasn't a variation I had practiced back then - but for some reason I'd expected it to be much more accessible than it was at the time. 😂
These days Chapasana has become a favorite pose, and I really enjoy practicing it fairly often. But the truth is that my hamstrings are not naturally very flexible, and any progress I've had in this posture is a direct result of a consistent practice. 🙌🏼
There were no short-cuts, and as you can see the transformation didn't happen overnight. But even if I hadn't made as much physical progress as I did, I'd still be enjoying the practice every bit as much as I do. Because the real reward lies in what we discover about ourselves along the way. ❤️
For anyone that would like to know which poses have helped me warm up & get deeper into this one, head over to my latest blog post to find out!
