last week in yoga class i was gently coaxed and guided into this pose by my incredible teacher, barbara benagh. i would have NEVER believed i could accomplish this...in fact, i laughed out loud in disbelief when my fingertips first grazed my toes. but i realize it was simply fear standing between me and this wild and beautiful asana. many thanks to my generous teacher for helping me past that fear. it felt really, really good.
