You know that moment in magic-y, thriller-y , sci-fi-antasy movies where the guy is like
Bend the spoon with your mind!
And Neo is like
Are you crazy? I can’t bend a spoon with my mind!
And the other guy is like
Don’t tell me you can’t do it. Don’t think about it, just do it!
And then he does it!?
That’s how I feel in a really good yoga class. If I stop thinking about how or why or whether I can do it then suddenly I can do things that are otherwise impossible. It’s magical, that feeling when you get an instruction and then your body does it without having to consult your brain. That reminder that your body is a thing that you can run around and play in, stretch and bend. The form of it isn’t bound by anything, not even your brain. Not even your imagination.
Your body can run off in the playground of someone else’s fantasy too.
The world is full of people who can tap you into that subspace where your body leads and your brain follows. Go find them!
