“I feel like a crumpled piece of aluminum foil that has been flattened out.” ~ Norma Sherman, student
This is one of the more colorful analogies of the after-effects of practice I’ve heard. I can relate.
However we do it, recognizing how asana practice resonates in our bodies, minds and out into the rest of our day is worthwhile. There is a process of integration that happens when we articulate our experience.
Using words and images to describe the effects of your practice, if only to yourself, solidifies your experience of it.
