When I first started my yoga practice, I was absolutely mesmerized by the graceful and fluid movements of my yoga teachers at that time. They were moving so effortlessly and with such ease, while I was huffing and puffing somewhere in the back row.
And let's not even talk about trying harder poses, such as various arm balances, headstands or handstands. These were simply not happening, no matter how hard I tried.
With more and more time spent on the mat, I started seeing great benefits that the regular practice brought me - mental clarity, relaxed attitude, a level of ease. But I also knew I wanted MORE in terms of my body.
