Retrieved from Cora’s Holy Yoga journal, “…I think there are poses I will never attain. As the week progresses I take each pose one more step. The same way I am called to walk with God, get me out of the way and take one more step in faith. Then, I have to take a breath from the Spirit.
I have to get rooted and plant myself firmly engaging the muscles (of faith). I have to bring my limbs into alignment with my middle with Christ as the center. Then, I take my focus or gaze to the correct position. Moving slowly and breathing into the pose, not getting ahead of the breath (or Holy Spirit).
I began to place my shoulder where it should be. Then, I can begin to work my leg and knee into place. It is behind my back, over my shoulder. I reach across with my hand and gently pull the right foot up, but pushing the heel away from the hip. Before I know it, I am praising God that my back is straight as well as the right leg!
The girls around me are cheering their encouragement and cameras are flashing! Praise God!”
Note: The picture was a little early. The leg actually went all the way behind the head while touching the opposite shoulder.
