but it must have been Mel's encouraging coaxing, the softness and warmth of her voice and the care she exudes in managing the exercises, the poses for newbies, actually, returnees to yoga like me. so in more than an hour, i struggled with the heat, but the in the poses, i was less wobbly and getting firm on my feet.
i'm just glad i have come. that's why Yoga is Practice. like writing, like Natalie Goldberg's writing practice. one just have to go back to it, get back to it, and persist despite the many reasons to say 'no'. to practice is to be there. the practice is to commit. the practice is to just do. the practice is saying 'no' to 'no-ing'.
