I was practicing handstands the other day. I didn’t move all the furniture out of the way. Coming down, my foot hit the corner of a nightstand. Hard.
I’m sure the toenail will grow back.
The irony was not lost on me.
Yoga is all about creating space: space between the vertebrae, space in the heart and in the mind. The physical exercise creates room in bodies and meditation creates much needed gaps in thinking.
Space is good! It fosters a better posture – both literally and figuratively.
