The posture feels awkward, stay in the pose anyway.

The mind wanders, return to the breath anyway.

The fear of falling is crippling, let go anyway.

The heart heaves with the weight of the dark clouds hanging overhead, surrender anyway.

The soul feels beaten, practice anyway.

The same asana, the same breath.

A different intention, a different outcome.

This is why you return to the mat.

To learn, relearn and unlearn.

To allow yourself to be transformed.

Happy International Yoga Day.
