On the mat,
With strength, you shall build muscles cell by cell
With flexibility, you shall bend lower to the Earth
With strength, you will diligently show up on your mat because of dedication
With flexibility, you will abandoned that same notion because of freedom
With strength, you go back to the same asana again though fear threatens you
With flexibility, you say “Let’s try again”
With strength, you become more flexible.
With flexibility, you become stronger
Off the mat,
With strength, you become the best support system for yourself and then for others
With flexibility, you slowly refrain from allowing others to drown you
With strength, you finally learn to let go
With flexibility, you heal and learn to trust again.
With strength, you trust your own convictions.
With flexibility, you acknowledge the convictions of others
With strength, you get up in life after falling
With flexibility, you mould yourself to not fall again.
The occasional trip is inevitable 😉
