Day 101 – Tight

Half Moon Pose or Ardha-Chandrasana Part 2 8/10/10

Half Moon Pose or Ardha-Chandrasana Part 2 8/10/10

I know, what should I expect?  I haven’t been to Yoga for awhile, so, of course, I am not going to be Ms. Flexible, but I was really tight and one thing I have started to notice is that I hold a lot of energy and stress in my neck.  I have a massage on Thursday, so hopefully that will work some of that out.

Today’s pose is Half Moon Pose or Ardha-Chandrasana Part 2 – the back bending part is the part 2 portion.  I cannot help but look at the size of my ass in this pose.  Of course, in the yoga room, I cannot see my ass, but I mean in this photo within this pose – need help with ridding myself of the love handles.

I love this pose, I feel like I have really advanced in it and think I can advance further with more consistent practice which I haven’t done.

I was talking to my neighbor the other day.  She’s in her mid-70s or so and I was looking at her hands and they were so deformed, my guess would be from arthritis and I thought to myself, “I’ve gotta keep the yoga up!”  Honestly, I really don’t want my hands to get that way.  And the thing is, my neighbor is so active.  She’s like my mom – the energizer bunny and then some.

Today’s teacher was Maria.  Maria arrived late, so Conk started the class.  As much as I love Maria, I really love Conk and his voice and his final savansana.  He has an awesome one.  He leaves me with this feeling where I just want to run up and hug him and kiss him.  Not sexually, but more like a little girl that’s excited and grateful.

I need to go through one of his classes soon, that’s for sure.  I am going to try to go tomorrow, but I am anxious about getting a headache.  I am hoping that I can drink enough water today to try and combat the headache I get – although I am not quite sure if it is a dehyrdation headache.

I have a conference call in 12 minutes, so I need to jet and  be prepared for it.  Hope everyone is well.  Namaste.
