This is my attempt at wheel pose. I was only able to lift myself on to my head for a few seconds. I have not been able to do a complete wheel pose since last fall due to complications with my back. I was a bit disappointed that I couldn’t do it completely because it felt so right to even try. I am grateful for the progress that my back is making though. If I didn’t have yoga in my life I can only imagine how long this healing journey would have taken.
Through this process of healing yoga has taken on a new meaning for me. It is no longer simply exercise. It has become a friend, a constant companion that I can not do without. I would no longer want to. Sat Nam!
