“Zalary, relax your neck.” “Zalary, relax your face.” “Zalary, this isn’t an academic problem for you to solve.” These are things my yoga teacher admonishes while I attempt to ‘hold’ or ‘relax into’ a pose.
I’m not sure if I’m an easy read, or she just has my number. But glob flabbit are these are things I need to remember outside of yoga.
(I never thought I would do yoga seriously, or have a yoga teacher. The reasons I resist it are the reasons I need it. Ugh.)
