On the up...

Monday, May 24, 2010

After almost of week of feeling a bit cruddy, I am happy to say I am on the up. No more uncontrollable sneezing in coughing. You can hug me again. I feel sorta lucky. I just found out my office mate is in the hospital with the pneumonia. We both went to work sick on Friday. My thoughts are with her.

Today in Bikrams Yoga I felt great! My body was strong, my breathing was deep, and my attitude was powerful. Bengal Tiger strength as they say. Now that I have stopped habitually drinking and smoking I find that my body surprises me with its ability... it still disappoints me too. But today was a good day in yoga.

In Bikrams Yoga, some one patented and makes quite a bit of money on this form of yoga, and although I don't agree with it, I find a lot of value in the stretches in the hot room. I have to admit I like the some what militant instruction too. I try to go once a week to get those deep stretch and work out some of the knots and trigger points that I get from my weekly workouts. Halfway through the asanas we do an eagle pose, well in all of my 100 attempts of this pose over the four years, I have always been able to twist my right leg around my left, but never the opposite. My left hip was so tight (from an accident in my teens) I couldn't manage to twist it around so I always just set it on top. Today, I was able to twist it around, almost effortlessly. Tell me how does that happen?

Bengal Tiger strength? Self care? Determination? My guess it is a little bit of everything. That is always the answer. Its all connected.

    Different days bring different results. Some days I can bike for hours on end with no pain and some mornings I can't get out of bed without pain. You do what you have to do! Glad you are feeling better! emoticon
