In particular, I was impressed with her ability to strike a pose that had her head down, her arms on her knees, and her whole body balanced on her hands while upside down.
“It’s easy to do,” she told me as I rolled my eyes and scoffed. “Here, I’ll show you.”
And you know what? It was easy.
I couldn’t believe it. Within seconds, I was doing yoga. “Look at me!” I proudly declared, “I’m yogaing!”
Sure enough, I was balancing on my hands upside down in a challenging yet attainable pose. Epod was also able to do it and told me how it was a pretty common move in yoga.
That move has since transformed me. I have decided that I want to immerse myself in yoga, to dig deep into it, to learn its physical as well as spiritual challenges in the hopes of making me a better person and, hopefully, meditator.
I have already signed up for a month-long series of beginning yoga classes here in DC. I might also stop running so I can sufficiently dedicate myself to the ways of yoga. I have even created a Twitter account so I can share my journey.
I hope you’ll follow me.
