One of my students last week was taking the second yoga class in their life. At the end I asked, “How did it go?”. The reply:

“It was difficult, but not impossible. “

I was impressed and inspired by this brief statement. Difficult is indeed not the same as impossible. However, according to how often we give up on things that are difficult, it might seem like they’re synonims. This is not to speak in favour of engaging in struggles with life, but certain experiences might only come with a certain degree of difficulty. The capacity to take this difficulty on with equanimity, without struggling, but also without pretending it’s not there, makes many things that we might be fancying absolutely possible.

Thanks to all my students at Yoga Hub Berlin, who inspire me with their practice.
