Climbing is Yoga.
Climbing can be the desire to fully express oneself freely and fully. Climbing can be to move beyond how one is defined. To move with clarity, not because it matters to anyone other than oneself.
When climbing is about winning, being THE best, the grade or the money, it ceases to be like Yoga and becomes constricted even when grades are increasing.
When Yoga becomes about deepest expression of a pose, handstand and a workout... it too stops being about Yoga. Freedom. It is constricted by the desire to be THE best.
