follow your compass

Compass pose: Watched the instructor show it, pretended I didn’t know it… 

I mean, how can I do THAT?!



Well, as the saying goes, weakness makes you stronger.  So I tried the pose, fell a few times, then managed to make some sort of a pose that you could call compass pose.  This pose is my next focus (along with mastering handstand, almost there!) 

When I taught yoga last summer, I used the quote “fall seven times, stand up eight” to my students.  I’ve been practicing what I preach, not only by applying it to yoga, but also in life.  In order to succeed and figure out what I want most in life, I have to put myself out there.  In doing so, I may fail a few times, but that will not hold me back-it will make me stronger. 

I hope you all have a happy week this week!  If you don’t hear from me in a while, I may be stuck from attempting compass pose!
