The July challenge



Kino's July challenge pushes me forward. There are poses that I usually omit because of my back issues, i.e. navasana. As it is part of the series, I explored what was possible. How to get into this asana had to be altered. But look, it's possible.
Setu bandhasana will be the next huge challenge. It seems impossible these days. I got too weak. But I'll explore my possibilities. I'll approach this asana open-minded.
I'm more than happy that I could do supta kurmasana and all the other asanas, too.

Every second day I practice primary to get stronger again. I get stronger every day. It's a stony way back, but at least there is a path.

I changed the sentence 'Don't give up' to 'Keep practicing'. It's positive. The mind only understands positive messages. And I keep practicing. I can harvest the first fruit.

For those who want to follow the challenge on Instagram, here is the link.

Your wisdom always speaks to me, simply put yet very profound at the same time. I love your use of words, dear U...
Wishing you many happy moments of stretching and bliss on your mat!

As a side note, my eldest daughter now lives in France, looks like I will get a passport and travel there. I'm getting better at developing a desire for travel, seeing loved ones will do that.

Warmly,
Debb

Thank you very much, dear Debb.

Wow, it's great to live in France. It's one of my fav countries in Europe. Please let me know when you'll travel to France. Once a year we are there on vacation. It would be wonderful to meet you in person. Why not in France?

You'll love Europe. It can be that it ignates your lust for traveling. :) Yeah, get a passport and a ticket and see your loved ones anywhere on this planet. It will enrich your life.
