When I got home last night I was STARVING. And aware enough to know that it would be a distraction through practice. So I grilled some chicken and made a nice salad. Watched a little TV and didn’t leave myself time enough for 90 minutes of anything.
So I didn’t do 90 minutes of yin. Because I’m trying to be more forgiving with myself, I feel good about doing a nice 60-minute class. But because I’m not 100% successful in forgetting what I said I’d do I’ve made a deal with myself to do 90 minutes soon—this weekend, maybe.
As expected the class was juicy and wonderful and I felt great after. During one of the first forward bends I might have actually dozed off. Is that possible? The teacher quit talking and sat quietly in the pose. And I was just that comfortable. It’s definitely a pose that I’ll do randomly and often.
I’m tired today. No coffee this morning and I haven’t made up for it. To yoga or not to yoga, that is the question.
Every class offers something: supported Head-to-Knee Forward Bend, Janu Sirsasana, is an amazing lower back opener. I thought it would be a great stretch for my hamstrings but by using support under the body forehead the lower back has the chance to leeeengthen. Yum.
