there are moments when i am trying to get back to regular practice…
the moments where i know my practice should be making me feel refreshed and whole, but instead it is labor and grinding as my body tries to remember.
the moments where i have to use will instead of desire.
the moments where something pops and slides into place.
the moments where i feel my strength returning…where sun salutation b makes me feel powerful instead of leaving me panting for breath.
the moments where the stretches are deep, the reaches are energetic, the flow moves me.
and suddenly i am there again…driven by my body’s craving to be one with this feeling and my practice becomes effortless, refreshing, and exhausting in that deeply satisfying way.
today, i felt the pop and slide…the strength and flexibility returning. just a little longer and i can reap the rewards of the climb.
