My role model


The longer I practice Ashtanga yoga the more I see how much it is a mental exercise. 
It's about observing. 
It's about concentration. 
it's about staying cool and carefree.

Practicing the asanas day in day out
finally
makes it happen.
Finally
a flexible and strong body,
a calm and focused mind
will become a daily joy.

Yesterday, I did my first downward dog with one bent arm (and a bit of fear but also joy).

This is very good news, Anna.

The start is done, now it's all about moving on. With care.
