Wind Removing Pose or Pavanamuktasana 8-10-10

Wind Removing Pose or Pavanamuktasana 8-10-10

I’m headed to Mayo next Monday and see my doc up there exactly one week from today. I’m a little nervous about the blood results as I haven’t felt as great as I did when I first came off the meds (felt like I was in high school again when I first came off of them) so I am wondering if anything is going on just ever so slightly. The reason I’m excited to go is for him to look at my knees to see if he can figure out what’s wrong with them. They weren’t happy in class this morning, that’s for sure.

Today’s teacher was Lisa. She seed more cynical than normal today – think she had a cold.

Today’s Bikram yoga pose is Wind Removing Pose or Pavanamuktasana and the new challenge I have for myself in this pose is that I’m trying to get the back of my neck flat on the ground. I remember when I did it in my early twenties and was in utter shock as I never thought it was possible to do and thought the teacher at the time (Angela – Bikram trained and an experienced yogi) was just talking gibberish. Of course, now I know it’s possible but that it seems impossible.

I’m playing in an Alumni Field Hockey game on Friday afternoon and am sorta dreading it. It’s funny because I thought by doing yoga all year long I’d be ready to play in it (mentally and physically), but since I haven’t accomplished what I set out to do in my physical body I find my mental one totally discouraged. If I score, I’ll forgive myself.  Dream on, little girl, dream on.

Namaste.
