Giddy Yoga

When I first started doing yoga, I’d come back from class beaming: I did crow pose! I did handstand!

Fifteen years later I’m just as excited, but my achievements are a little more subtle. I get all excited when I figure out something like: if I pull my shoulder into the socket in warrior one, I can more easily square my hips, or if I come up into downward dog from child pose I won’t pinch my neck and shoulders.

I may not be on my way to circus yoga, but I’m just as giddy.
