Shorts: Forearm and Scorpion Update

I was recently inspired to spend more time working on Forearm Balance and Scorpion pose. I haven’t posted in a while, but I have been working on it sporadically.

I am definitely getting close. I also feel okay about not getting it overnight. If you do a Google image search for “Most Difficult Yoga Pose,” you will pull up a page full of Black Crow (already nailed), Eka Pada Kundiyasana and Eight Angle Pose (check and check), Firefly (easy-peasy), Dragonfly (getting there), and dozens of pictures of Forearm/Scorpion Pose.

It’s really not the end of the world that I haven’t nailed down one of the “Most Difficult” yoga poses in under a year of trying. In fact, it would be the end of the world if I did! I plan to practice DDP Yoga for the rest of my life, and having challenges to work toward keeps me motivated. If I mastered all the most challenging poses too quickly, I’d risk having nowhere else to go*.
