Day 50 – Yeah Flexibility!

I was hoping that once I got back to Yoga that my flexibility would get better.  If anyone knows why when you take a long break from yoga that you all of a sudden seem to have more flexibility and are not as stiff, I would appreciate the knowledge and understanding.

Although I got back from Arkansas on Monday evening, I just couldn’t get out of bed yesterday morning to get to Yoga class.  I think when you end up having so much to catch up on, it is exhausting.  I also had a really nice vacation and wasn’t terribly excited about getting back into the swing of things.  I guess I would have liked a longer vacation.  Although I did miss my cats, so I was excited to see them again.

Because of cramped car rides while in Arkansas, my knee is hurting more than it has been.  I am sure I have torn something, but am hesitant to go to the doctor still…since I have had such a time with health insurance.  So today’s posture, the Bikram Triangle is not my friend when I have to bend my left knee.

Once I am in the position it seems to be fine.  It’s just a matter of getting into the position.

I don’t know why it is taking me so long to get to writing these posts.  Unfortunately, I do not have a computer in my brain because in class, I think of all these things I want to blog about and then I forget to include more than half of them when I actually get to the point where I can sit down and type.

Looking again at the title of this post, I really did feel lighter today with the renewed flexibility.   I hope I don’t lose that.  I did notice that I got that naseous (sp!) feeling in the camel pose again today.  So it is obvious that consistent yoga does keep the toxins out.  I would have to confirm that more by the fact that (knock on wood) I have not been sick this winter!  Which is well deserving because my Graves Disease lowered my white blood cell count for 8 years, and it seemed like I would catch every single cold.  But now that my immune system is back in action, no sicknesses!!

Namaste.
