Ashtanga tends to attract type A personalities. I am a type A personality. I like Ashtanga because I know what’s coming next, I know that each day I practice I can see change and growth, and I like that I can explore poses. I am working on standing up and falling back in backward bow pose. It has acrobatic flair, it is hard as heck, and I just can’t get it fast enough. After a led class this week we were breaking the pose down and I was making frustrated noises and rolling my eyes. From the corner of the room I heard a fellow yogi say, “I’m not worried about it. One day it will happen.” That shut me up. One day it will happen…one day.
