Returned to yoga class this week. Took some time off over the holidays. Time to eat turkey, dressing, a dozen chocolate crinkles. You know, that sort of thing.
So did the rest of my class. How do I know? My instructor felt the need to speak this bit of wisdom to us:
There are legitimate reasons to frown. The inability to do ardha chandrasana is not one of them.
Keep on keeping on. We’ll get there soon.
A cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a downcast spirit dries up the bones.
Proverbs 17:22 NRSV

Enjoy your weekend!
