Just be Patient
Today I express PATIENCE in variations of Lizard / Dragon. Whenever a teacher calls lizard in class, I want to throw my block at them. The area around my hips and pelvis require a lot for me to open them up. It has taken a long time for me to even step into and stay still in the adaptation up top. In that take I am using a turned over trash can in the office. In a class I’d be using 1, 2 maybe 3 blocks for support depending on the day.
In practicing yin yoga, where these are called Dragon variations, the request might be to hold the poses maybe 3 minutes. That’s a long time for me to stay still and be with the process. This definitely taught me patience. It teaches me that shift doesn’t happen overnight, that I have to be willing to acknowledge where I am on a given day, and to take my time in letting my body open up.
This speaks to so many things in my life where I want to “get” things right away. I want to become a perfect expert at work right away, to fix things instantly, to have answers. So I have to exercise patience, trust the process and breathe through every step of my journey.
