Ask me what I did this weekend.
It wasn't easy, and it wasn't for very long, but with the incredible help of a gifted yoga teacher I spent two hours in a workshop and by the end I learned how to invert myself into salamba sirsasana without wanting to burst into tears. I know about proper alignment, and I know that I can do this in my body without killing myself. That was the thing that was stopping me in the first place.
Hooray for bravery, patience and the guiding hand of a wise instructor.
