Yogis, Yoginis, & assorted partially interested parties, I made it through week one!
I’ve managed 4 days of longer practice (a mix of hatha & ashtanga), and 2 days of some admittedly gentler & shorter yogaing at home. AND, and, I did a bit of Zumba (side note: wow, I am not coordinated).
In the midst of this, I also walked down 19 flights of stairs thanks to a fire drill, so my legs are seriously feeling it right now. However, I did take Friday off to compensate, as I was feeling kind of like this:
Yesterday was a lovely wrap-up for the week – I went to a gorgeous Hatha class, visited my chiropractor, and Mr Bookeater (an ex-massage therapist) treated me to a massage. I feel like I’ve pressed the “restore to factory settings” button.
In terms of progress, my lower back is opening up a lot more – and this means my forward bends are actually progressing which is an exciting development for me!
