Maybe the stars were aligned just so. Perhaps it’s some windfall of karmic remuneration. Or, could it be that after seven months of near daily practice I’m beginning to gain a bit of facility with my Hatha practice?
Whatever the case, in this evening’s mixed level yoga class I flowed seamlessly from Malasana (a deep squat) into Bakasana (an arm balance) and into Salamba Sirsasana II (a tripod headstand)…and back.
While the ultimate destination is far too distant to see with anything but imagination, such an occasional mile marker reassures me that I’m still on the path.
