Byron was in charge today. He's great. When he walked in, he said, "You know what they say about small classes: they're quick, easy, and painless."
We all laughed.
Painless? No. Right from the start, my balance wasn't great. I had some good moments, but I found myself getting frustrated.
Byron must have been reading my mind, because then he said, "Remember: this isn't a yoga performance. This is a yoga practice."
And somehow, once I felt I had permission not to be perfect (not that I was even close), things got easier.
Thank heaven for intuitive teachers.
