We all have moments in our lives when something just “clicks.” Like when you learn to ride a bicycle or finally figure out how to program the VCR (she said dating herself.) In yoga, Aha moments come in many forms. Maybe there’s a particular pose that you finally “get” or maybe it’s understanding what the teacher means when she tells you to trust your body. For me, I’d always struggled with Salamba Sirsasana (supported headstand.) In fact, it took me years to be able to do the pose without the support of a wall.
I began to study under a teacher who gave me some great tips on how to extend into the pose while supported by a wall, but she also helped me to see that I could do anything I put my intention into. She helped me to develop confidence.
When I was finally able to get into Salamba Sirsasana without the wall or a teacher, my aha moment wasn’t about how to finally get into the physical pose, but that when I learned to trust myself, the pose became effortless.
Wha’s your yoga aha! moment?
