It is only when we forget all our learning that we begin to know.
~Henry David Thoreau
Then yesterday, my teacher pointed out that when I attempt to jump back, my elbows are too close to my body as I land in chaturanga.
I like having this new focus. My practice has been feeling static lately, but last night and this morning I recognized that feeling of anticipation and excitement that I had lost.
This is why we need teachers (including doctors)… to point out what we cannot see, help us forget what we have learned, and teach us to build the correct habits.
