Those of you who do yoga will know that we each find some exercises easier to do than others.
This evening we were doing both spinal rolls as well as the opposite, rocking on our tummies, with our knees bent and holding onto our ankles with heads held high. Everyone started out with full energy but began to flag as the minutes tick by.
It was at that point that our kundalini yoga instructor, Mark Keane, whom you met in one of my earlier posts, urged us to just keep doing something. To imagine that we were doing the movements even if our body was not quite keeping up and only managing them partially.
And why? Because when we go through the motions in our mind’s eye, we spark off physiological responses and at some point, we discover that we can indeed do what we thought we couldn’t. Yoga is a perfect example of this.
I loved that reminder. Go there with your mind and the body/energy follows.
I’d love to hear if you’ve experienced this in any areas of your life.
