My good friend is asking herself the question that pops up every now and then: “Why the hell are you doing this?!”
That question usually comes to me during these poses:
Kurmasana or Turtle Pose
Supta kurmasana or Sleeping turtle pose
and urdhva dhanurasana or Bow pose….
These poses are hard, painful and contorts your body in an unnatural manner… but I still do them because:
1. It’s part of the sequence;
2. Whatever little you can accomplish in those poses are actually big strides already.
3. After each pose, despite the difficulties…I always feel good about doing it!
4. And lastly there’s that hope that someday, I’ll be able to do the poses well…
And so to Catherine; I don’t think you will be doing something you don’t actually like to do. Keep at it and someday you will find out why it was so important that you had to do what you are doing now…
