I love this video about Arthur, a disabled Gulf war vet who felt hopeless and got fat, who was turned down by many yoga teachers. Then he met the manly yoga teacher Diamond Dallas Page, who asked himself:
How am I gonna help that guy?
That’s all it takes from the teacher. Arthur was willing to make an effort and fail:
Just because I can’t do it today doesn’t mean I can’t do it some day.
And that’s all it takes from the student.
I hope it inspires your practice, whether it’s yoga or commitment to any path toward health.
