I took a particularly inspiring yoga class this morning with a teacher that was very creative. The class turned us around and introduced new transitions so that we could really let go of our normal patterns. The movement was exactly what my body was asking for, but there were a couple of poses where I felt an uncomfortable pull in the back of my pelvis.
Towards the end of class, we did a rotational pose where we were supposed to just relax on the floor. It wasn't until the teacher came to adjust me that I truly let go. I was able to be completely passive and surrender to the weight of her hands on me. Once we switched sides and I took a breath, my pelvis shifted back into place and my body was in alignment. Sigh... relief never felt so sweet!
So many times in life and work and anything that we are passionate about, we try just a little bit too hard. It's nice to know that the hands of someone who can see where your body wants to go can help you get there.
I share this story with you to remind you that we are human, and need a helping hand from time to time. Let those who can truly see YOU guide your body to let go of what you no longer need.
