"Cultivate the desire to do more than you think you can"

My first yoga teacher always said that. It's a great quote because who can't at least cultivate a desire?

Last night in class I held crow pose for what felt like a minute but was probably more like 10 seconds. It felt triumphant. Later we did spread leg forward folds (perverts) and I could barely even get my elbows to the floor.

Balancing poses are no problem but I'm about as limber as an old creaky tree. I wonder if I can stretch out this metaphor (and include a pun!)....that if somehow it's just easier for me to achieve balance than be flexible. What's easier for you?

Perverts indeed, we can't help ourselves.
