Words of Wisdom

I was blow drying my hair the other morning while reading Bikram's book and he says that if you fall out of Standing Head to Knee you need to try again and then if you fall out again you need to try again.  This is not only good for your determination but it also helps your muscles "remember" where and how they are supposed to work.

I've been focusing on this asana in the past few days because it has been ages since I've been able to complete the posture to it's full expression - with the forehead on the knee.  The other night I got there - held it for a couple of breaths - came out of it gracefully and since then it's been a little easier to get into the pose every time I try.

Huh, who woulda thought he knows what he's talking about?

Congrats on "getting there"! It's amazing how much our bodies are so capable of achieving the seemingly impossible if you challenge it hard enough but at the same time being aware of its limits. Nice to see you too! :)
