I have (secretly) (and admiringly) started referring to my Wednesday yoga instructor as kickass Gumby. This women has such strength that not only can she quickly jump into a pose but she does it with control and grace. Much like the video above. The type of instructor that can easily contort into a pose that has 1/2 the class sighing in awe and 1/2 the class laughing in doubt. And while you know it will take a lot of practice to get to that level it opens up the room and encouragement to try new poses, to trust yourself to challenge yourself.
