Kapotasana is  my favorite life metaphor. It is the pose that I fear the most. It involves the breath to be so deep, so even and so « easy », at the same time. It requires to completely let go of any fear. After 12 years of rigorous practice, I still cannot find my breath in that pose (and in many others). That is my personal reminder to begin every single day with no expectation and with a complete beginner’s mind. But it is also my personal reminder that we can do anything if we practice, stay open and let go of fear. This picture was taken by my dear friend Anne-Margreet Honing, during a fabulous road trip in Southern California.
