Asana – Mediocre or Magic?

Sometime in the distant past………
…….From my mat I remember sneaky peaking out of the corner of my eye as a yoga student practised sun salutations. I fell into complete awe? I was simply dumbfounded, amazed, and admittedly a little bit jealous, at how smoothly she was flowing. How effortless she moved from one position to the next. Transitions light, soft, graceful and soundless. Springing lightly from adho mukha svanasana and landing soft as a feather into uttanasana. To me, it was simply as if I was watching magic.
