Acceptance encourages us to trying some of these solutions. We try a prop: A block, towel, folded mat or a strap.
Acceptance teaches us that we are not the same, we are not alone and that we can adapt and overcome.
For some, the pain and frustration is interfering and cumbersome. However, we know we need Yoga. We begin to feel the peaceful rejuvenation of our limbs flexing their muscles. We feel our mind come to a place of peace. We feel less pain. We try harder to overcome the obstacles that make us fear we will not complete our journey. We wrestle with the positives and negatives looking for a solution.
We accept that if we keep trying, we will have a pain-free practice with intention of a pose. We struggle to reach our goal to have a place in time that we become connected with our mind and body.
