Danda-yam-ana Dha-nur-asana…. rings in my ears like an iambic pentameter of sorts. I have been plateauing in this pose for some time now. And yesterday I started moving out of it, because I hit a new spot. Maybe it’s because I had an instructor who was completely new to me. The class was very different from what I’m used to so I guess that’s a good thing. I felt something new, pulling my foot back behind me. Whatever it was gave me the strength to continue pulling my foot up above my head. But it’s really hard to keep it up there for a full minute! I’m working on my determination for that part. It will happen soon.
