Bit by bit

There are a bunch of us who are yoga class regulars in the studio I go to, although the others started doing yoga a whole year before I did. So I really shouldn’t be surprised that many of them are able to kick up into headstands, handstands, or tripods without breaking a sweat. Those are poses that I really wish I’m able to do without thinking about them. Even after months of doing yoga, however, I still can’t do a headstand on my own, something I was feeling pretty sad about a while ago. However, I realized that there’s really no rush to learn how to do it. I’m sure it will come in time, and there’s really nothing wrong with perfecting the poses I can do and with tiptoeing slowly into the poses I find challenging and scary.
