The Merudandasana Challenge – Before & After (+ weeks 5 & 6)

Hello McFlys.  Guess what? – Mission ACCOMPLISHED!!

I hope you are as excited about my Before and After shots as I am.  This improvement came from 6 weeks of regular, graded practice targeting hip flexibility and core strength (3 times per week).  Now, the focus is on maintenance (a good, targeted hip stretch around 3 times a week).

There is monumental satisfaction (with a smidgeon of smugness) that comes from setting a goal, committing to the process, and achieving progress.  Of course, strictly yogically-speaking, we aim not to attach too much to outcomes – but well… to challenge the logic, that’s an attachment to an outcome in itself.  So, with that in mind…

LOOK WHAT I MADE IN MY BODY! {runs around like kermit waving arms in the air}.  

Everybody can PROGRESS their practice, regardless of age and ability.  Have a go yer mugs.  Take a before and after shot and send it to me!  Then we can all relish in your glory.
