As we launch into our teacher training immersion week, I have quickly realised that blogging every day is a tough ask!
However, while I sit and ponder (and let’s face it, with a giant shovel try to calmly cram the sequences into my brain), rather than the alignment descriptions or the building blocks that I know I need to learn, it is the Spiritual Focus that Baron writes about that awakens something in me and pulls me in to his yoga world.
So with that in mind, I thought it important to document the ones that force me to pay attention. They may just be the road map to my own journey in all of this.
Resenting our present condition can cause us to try to “grab the bull by the horns” and struggle to get to success quickly. But just being in the present moment and playing your own edge is enough and allows you to grow naturally. It’s like the story of the tortoise and the hare: The tortoise took slow and steady steps, and he achieved his goal before the pushy and fast-footed hare.
