She also reminded us to not sink down into our joints during poses like Warrior I and II because it causes our muscles to stop stretching and wears out our joints. I had really forgotten that!
I didn't love everything though! It was hard not to do my "favorite" poses and to have a different rhythm to the practice than I was used to. I kept wanting things my way! What a good practice for me in leaving my ego at the door!
This new setting with it's challenges and rewards gave me a chance to grow in my own practice and learn new and different lessons. I encourage all of you, try something new, even if you don't love it, it's good for you!
