Some days are true battles. Everything goes wrong, you are misunderstood, you are attacked without reason, you are put down (sometimes by things you say to yourself)... These are spiritual battles. Sometimes it is hard to fight these invisible battles, because you can't see your enemy... So it is important to practice strength in our lives through our yoga practice. Understanding our reactions when we are not strong enough and training ourselves to go to the Lord instead of victimizing ourselves is paramount to win these battles.
Today in class we will find strength in the Lord through arm balances. By trying to get into different arm balances including astavakrasana (eight angle pose), we will notice how we react during times we need strength. Do you quit?? Do you tell yourself you are not good enough? Do you keep trying? We need to learn to turn to the Lord as we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Philipians 4:13). Can you do it? Maybe not today, but through consistency, and faithful obidience we can develop our practice and do anything. This is a lesson for our yoga practice and lives.
Don't ever quit! We can do anything because our God is the God of the impossible.
Stay blessed and enjoy class!
