For the Fourth of July, Bill, the cats and I headed down to my parents’ lake house with the rest of my family.  I decided to take a few days off  before the 4-day weekend – so all in all, I took a week off which I was really excited about – and was trying my darnest not to go to a computer.  However, I guess when you take a break, your body sometimes shuts down and lo and behold, I was sick the whole time.

Then we returned on Monday evening and I was still sick for the rest of the week.  I could have gone on Saturday and Sunday, if I am to be quite honest, but I have this obnoxious cough and didn’t want to go.

So I went today.

And it was wonderful.  I know I have said this before but the weird thing about my body and yoga is that if I take a long time off then I am more flexible and my body just feels better.  Now how does that work?  Well, I take that back a little bit.  My body feels better when I am in class, but during the day, I still wished that I would have done Yoga that morning.  And that’s what I have got to keep reminding myself.  I want to feel that day in and day out.  I do feel better during the day when I go to yoga.

I went to bed at midnight last night, coughed until about 2am and then up for yoga at 6am!  BLAST.  No doubt I will be tired tonight, so hopefully I will poop in bed after watching a few things that I have DVRed that I would like to see.

Today’s pose is Poorna-Salabhasana or Full Locust Post.  Not much to this one, although I feel like I am a little kid on the ground pretending to take-off when we do this pose.  The instructor today was Lauren and she mentioned that the goal on this one is to get your thighs off the ground – I felt like I had an ephipany when she said that – didn’t know that . Namaste.
