My Notes On Asana 10

Backbends or Heart Openers have never been a favourite of mine… Even now, after 10 years, I still need to get into one very, very slowly, and after a long warm up and practice. This makes me think a lot about how I confront the world. For me, it has always been easy to follow my own heart; I have always made decisions based on what it tells me leaving my mind totally out of it… And that has sometimes got me into trouble. Many times, really. Learning to balance both is the key. But even though I follow my heart, I don’t always give my heart to others fully, or show my vulnerability completely. My personal relationship to my heart is well and healthy, but not the relationship of my heart with others. I always try to appear stronger than I truly am. I don’t know why. Maybe because I am afraid, maybe because I am tired of making mistakes, maybe because every time I trusted too much I got hurt… maybe, maybe, maybe…. Whatever it is, I am working on it. And working on my backbends too…
