Take Crane, for instance. It was many, many attempts over weeks and weeks of falling on my head, before I could hold Crane for 5 seconds. Today, I held Crane for 30 seconds and only came down because my wrists started hurting.
I also didn’t tumble over when doing Royal Dancer and managed Standing Leg Extension with “toe lock.” I haven’t lost any flexibility since my break after Round 1 and all the moves and poses had much more stability. I’m hopeful that I will continue to perform Yoga better over the course of the next few months. At that point, I may have a Twister party, confident that no one in my circle will be able to defeat the new Gumby-Me.
What about you? Don’t be a creeper, chime in. Are you benefiting from yoga? Or are you a yoga hater? What’s your most challenging pose? Mine continues to be the Standing Splits!
