Yoga . . . .
Monday, November 25, 2013
They offered a 1/2 hour yoga session free for workers on Mondays at lunchtime, in our building. I was delighted. Brought in my yoga mat - and discovered virtually everything the instructor was doing required two working arms. I have nerve damage in my left brachioplexus that means I have only 20 to 25 per cent of the use of that arm. I have NO triceps and only about 20% of my biceps. I have no feeling in most of my left arm and hand. I can't support myself on two arms, because my left arm collapses. I do a lot of yoga myself at home, but I improvise or skip things that need me to support my body with my arms. This instructor was doing almost entirely things that I could absolutely not do. I watched for about 15 minutes and then concluded that I was not going to be able to participate. I'll have to keep doing it on my own where I can adapt to my limitations without upsetting anyone. Oh well . . . .
