Just when I needed it most.
I was weak in parts of practice, mostly around the bhuja to garba pindasana area. I guess that’s expected with my less frequent practice and that’s ok, I didn’t stress myself out too much with the transitions or jump-backs. So my feet touched the ground, sue me.
Bruising is definitely getting less with garba pindasana too, and rolling around is getting better. Rolling up to kukkutasana is also getting more secure. I’m not fearing a face plant as much anymore which makes rolling up easier.
I can kinda cross my own feet in supta k but I feel more comfortable having the soles of the feet touch. The legs are quite firmly and securely behind the shoulders so I’m working on pulling the shoulders back stretch the legs some more. I can’t for the life of me get my own leg up behind my head and I’m ok with that, it puzzles me how to do it more than frustrates.
One thing that’s starting to worry me is the feeling of unevenness/unbalance in my back. The right side of my back from around the middle of the back doesn’t feel right. I want to see someone about it but I’m not sure who will be the best option. I always have the option of seeing my physio and sports doctor again. They know my history and the stuff I get myself into, but at the same time, I want to try other options just to see what they’re like. So far I’m thinking about going to a chiropractor, an osteopath or an Occupational Therapist a friend is recommending. I vaguely know what each of them do, so I guess my first action is to do some research.
So far it feels like a muscular problem, but it could also be associated with the disk herniation since the discomfort in the lower right back is not completely gone. Up-dog still feels a little pinchy.
Well, at least I don’t feel totally crap anymore.
Damn I just remembered I did inversions with my moon… sugar… oh well, too late now.
