My hip is hurting a little bit today. Should I practice and work through it? Or should I take a day off?
Generally this wouldn’t be a question—I’d get home tonight, have dinner, maybe take a nice hot bath, then kick my feet up. But my other half is going to be out so I’ve got the house to myself for a while—a nice opportunity to practice. Plus, I know that I won’t get much, if any, mat time next week while we’re on vacation.
I had a nice restorative class last night focusing on unwinding those of us that are heavy computer users. Nice arm and hand stretches; upper back openers; ending with a wonderfully long seated forward fold.
Every class offers something: “Remember how to be at ease in your body.”
