Day 3: Eight Angle Pose|Astavakrasana

Day 3 #CDFLessonsFromYoga :Eight angle pose| Astavakrasana

The lesson for today is to not judge a book by its cover, whether that’s things or people. Just like I judged this pose initially. Once I looked up a “how to” video, I was amazed that it wasn’t as difficult as I thought. This taught me optimism. It taught me how to just give things a shot. To not over think, worry, but especially judge something or someONE I don’t know. This came at a time in my life where I was taught this lesson of not judging on more levels than one. Personal, very humbling levels. Levels that I had royally messed up. Levels that would make your head explode. Levels that made me plea for someone to hopefully not judge WHO I was but have grace for my shortcomings. But the simple fact that when I took the time to look deeper and get to know the pose all to find out it wasn’t that eluding, showed me that a lot of times we judge quick without any solid evidence to back those judgements up. Be full of grace, be optimistic, be willing to be wrong, and be willing to be vulnerable.
