At Yoga Class She is Surprised to See Who She Really Is
Every Yoga class is an opportunity to understand who you really are. I don't mean that it is a place where you will be able to exhibit great courage, or overcome an obstacle in your life that was holding you back. Instead I mean the opposite. Yoga reveals to you that you have no courage. It places obstacles that you never guessed would slow you down directly in your path. The shocking thing about it is that those obstacles come from within your own body -- tight hamstrings, weak muscles, lack of endurance -- and, if you're lucky, within your soul. It shows you what you are hiding and exactly where.
