Yogi of the Week: Kat

This is Kat.

She believes that anyone can be successful if they approach challenge, possibility and adventure with true openness. It's how she overcame her nemesis: handstands.

For years, handstands had been a source of anxiety. There was something keeping Kat from hoisting her legs over her head, and it wasn't physical. One night, while practicing in her living room (in her underwear, no less - talk about freeing yourself from constraint), she decided to give handstands another shot. Feeling completely at ease, she approached the pose with a new attitude. “What the heck,” Kat thought. “Might as well give it another shot.” And with the support of the wall, and the absence of her judgments, she went right upside down.

That moment taught Kat the power of remaining open to her possibility, because when you stop getting in your own way, you'll be surprised by what you already know how to do. Yoga has taught Kat about deep honesty – with herself and others – not to mention revealed her courage, creativity and beautiful friendships.

Practice On.
