Taking Flight: Practice and Detachment
Okay, so this sequence reflects the theme of immersion weekend in a variety of ways.
· Basic poses that we practice form the foundation for the harder poses.
· We need to practice the harder poses regularly.
· We have to cultivate an attitude of what I would call engaged detachment. Don’t get too upset about the inability to do, to do well, to do at all. Watch and learn. Continue to practice.
· Bird poses and balancings represent flight.
· Don’t be overwhelmed. There’s plenty on this sequence that I can’t do. Come and do what you can.
