30 Days of Yoga- Day 5

Power Yoga with Fiona So

Language barriers can be challenging, but despite being occasionally confused when Fiona asked for “top up” instead of “half lift”, today, a foreign accent actually opened my mind and practice to a new way of experiencing shavasana (…and in no way whatsoever did the foreign accent detract me from getting my sweat on).

“Let your feet be happy. Let your legs be happy. Let your back be happy. Let your arms be happy. Let your head be happy.” I relaxed my body into a state of happiness, letting myself relax completely, open up, become light while also grounding deeply into the earth. Then I realized that she was saying “heavy”. That made more sense, but I like my happy body in shavasana even better. :)
