I was once again reminded by TMB's post about surprising myself when I tried jumping through to a sitting position from downward dog during Richard’s class on Saturday. All this while, like TMB I have been telling myself that there was no way on earth I could do it or do it elegantly (sic!) (ok, in TMB’s case it was holding back on the pace for her long runs). Well guess what…Richard made me do it and I did it (twice to the boot!)! We often sell ourselves short and put a mental block in our minds of what amazing things we can do (physically and mentally); all I (and most of us here) need to do is take a leap forward and trust ourselves (and our training).
