Not with yoga per se... but with a movement and dance history class. We choreographed our own dances. As it turns out, certain such controlled movements can sometimes trigger a type of memory "ingram", resulting in a very strong emotional response to something buried in the subconscious memory. It doesn't necessarily bring forth the memory, but the emotional response is there. Grief is the most common one, followed by fear and anger... it happened to me, and sounds like that's what you experienced, too.

It may not happen at all the next time. The only way to know is to go... as for overdoing it... oh yeah. It's that narrow line again. the one between doing enough to make a difference, and doing too much. A regular tightwire, it is! LOL

Don't worry if it takes a while. It can change from day to day anyway! LOL Just keep at it, one baby step at a time!

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." Walter P. Chrysler said it, I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called t

I do chair yoga & chair aerobics, with the People with Disabilities team, here on Spark People. Other standing exercises I cannot do because of a bad ankle, but chair yoga/exercises are GREAT for me. I am a little sore the next day, but not in pain like I am when I do stand up exercises or on machines.

For anybody that is intersted, you can go to youtube to check out chair exercises.

Everyone have a good day.

~~Starr~~

HAPPY 2014. MAKE IT A FUN & HEALTHY YEAR!

I do yoga most every day. nearly always in the morning and many times just before bed. When I first started, I couldn't do any of the standing poses except Mountain Pose because I was so top heavy, weak, and fell a lot.

So I started with just some of the lying down poses, then added some of the sitting ones and kneeling ones. It wasn't until I had lost 50 lbs that I was able to the standing and lunge poses.

Baby steps!

Even with yoga, those of us with FM can't do some of the poses others can do because the stretches are too far for our muscles. Only do those poses that don't hurt. We need to do only gentle and slow yoga.

Blessings,
Heidi

Go for it but take it easy! If you get too sore, then back off a bit.

well, I did it :) so far so good. I did the minimul or less of everything, took it very slow. felt fine other than my muscles dancing after. I walked the mall with my friend after to keep my muscles loose and then had a light lunch, drank lots of tea :) I feel ok, very tired, a little sore in some places, thighs, shoulders, back, and have a little anxiety, but that's mostly about leaving the 2 year old. So, I think I will go back next week! it's so nice, we do the class outside and it's free! they have different teacher from around the area each week, so they are top quality people. yay :)

so, I have read that yoga is great for fibro. I did a bit of it when I tried P90X last year. I've always stayed away because I have never been flexible, so it was difficult, but I learned to like it. My best friend is a Yoga instructor (on the side) I have been to some of her classes (also last year) well, she invited me to a free class offered every Sunday at the mall, so I thought it would be good for me to try. This was back in Nov. I did the class, pushed myself like I was used to doing and felt fine, my hips hurt and my back, but that was normal. Driving home I broke down. I felt awful. mostly emotionally, I cried and cried and I started to hurt everywhere. And I was pretty much in tears the rest of the day, my poor husband didn't know what to do! I'm sure it was all the toxins being released and my body didn't know what to do with it, but it was such a horrible experience I didn't go back. But I want to. I want it to help me and I think I just need to take it WAY slower and realize that just because my body doesn't hurt right that minute, doesn't mean it wont so I better be careful. So I'm going tomorrow. And I will do very little, and drink lots of water after. Just wondering if anyone has had something like that happen? Do you think it's nuts to go back and try again??

Bekah :o)
