I’m so excited about the #sizedoesntmatter challenge but I noticed that many of you have concerns about whether the challenge will be beginner friendly. I wrote a little response on my blog (link is in my IG header) but I want to share a little about my own ‘beginner’ qualms.
For starters, I have a lot of trouble w/ arm balances. Early in my home practice I bore too much weight into my wrists in certain poses which have resulted in very weak and tender wrist joints. When I saw that my co-host @yoga_davina planned some #crowpose prep for one of her weeks, I uttered an audible “Oh Shit”- #bakasana is a pose that kind of scares the bejeezus out of me & my poor little wrists.
But then I thought “You know what? Hell yeah! Now I have the opportunity to practice a pose that (quite literally) feels out my grasp.” I plan to go slowly, take my time & be super conscious of my wrists. But I, like many of you, am a novice when it comes to this pose. And you know what? That’s perfectly fine. Because the point of the challenge is not to be “picture perfect”. It’s just to have fun, learn from each other and especially learn from your DAMN self. If you want to read more of my rambles about this topic, click the link to my blog (jessamynstanley.com).
