COOPERATION INSTEAD OF COMPETITION - Day 12 of #yogaeverydamnday
and the #yogagirlchallenge
with @yoga_girl went quite well.
I did about an hour of stretches to open up my hip area. Then did an attempt to do the clown headstand, but my wrists is killing me. Supported on my knuckles I managed to do it for like a second...I was so out of balance. I found myself comparing myself to when this was an easy pose for me to do, along with other poses that no longer is achievable, at least not for the time being. Yes, I'm not getting any younger, I know, but having injuries that makes everything that much harder is a struggle for me.
I'm slowly finding my way back to yoga, and that it's not all about the different poses for the physical body, but just as much the stretching of the mind. Although I never was much of a competitor I find myself comparing to where I was or where I want to be. I worked hard today to be cooperative with my body, to where it's at, right now.
So, the session today turned out to be a lesson - I need to work on cooperation and compassion, for myself, even more.
It's a slow progress, but I'm grateful for the baby steps. 🙏🏼✨
