I’ve returned to yoga after a hiatus of some time. There is a particular pose, “Firefly,” that has eluded me since I began taking classes twenty years ago. It requires all of yoga’s essentials: strength, balance, and flexibility. My teacher assures me that it is within my grasp. To pave the way, I’ve been attempting its precursor, “Crow.”
And two weeks ago in class, I held “Crow” for two seconds.
Struggling to lift off the mat and into balance, I was looking back at my feet when my teacher said something completely disorienting.
“Sarah, lift your head,” she said.
Huh? I needed to be watching my feet.
But you know what happened next.
That’s part of what makes an exceptional teacher/coach/mentor/guide.
They know where you must place your gaze to lift off.
And they know that, sometimes, orientation requires disorientation.
