What you focus on…

Well… less than week after writing about not being able to do headstands, I managed to do two within three days!  First in Astanga class then during an amazing master class at Yogahaven led by one of my favourite teachers, Allie Hill.

With guidance and having the posture clearly broken down, step-by-step, I was able to come into Shirshasana up against the wall.  I even practised it again at the end of my class this morning when no-one was looking, just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke.  Having held on to years of fear around this posture I still can’t quite believe it!   For me, what is even more significant than getting to the beginning stage of practising Shirshasana against the wall is succeeding in actually facing my fear.  Though I am sure they don’t realise what this means to me, I am so very grateful to my teachers. 

It also makes me wonder what else, in time, might be possible.

About humbleyogini

I am not an expert – just a humble yogini with so much still to learn. This thing called ‘Yoga’ has unexpectedly crept into my psyche. I want to write about this yoga journey I have embarked upon and see where it takes me. If you are reading this maybe some of this will chime with you. You can also find me on Twitter @HumbleYogini75. Namaste.
