As we speak I am sat in half-lotus. I can feel the strength of the stretch as I sit here. I know it takes time. I read a yoga book last night that talked about the benefits of putting your foot higher and that making it easier – of course, if it’s all hard, you can’t change that! Also, my yoga teacher (ashtanga) explained that after a while, lotus, when paired with a full bend etc, becomes a massage for your internal organs as your foot presses into your belly. I hadn’t really thought of it like that before so perhaps it’s the case of stretching my mind before my body!
Wow. The truths that yoga makes available for me. I love it! 5 months ago
