A couple of weeks ago I felt something new in Half-moon, it was like somebody grabbed around my ribs and just lifted my upwards and over, it happened on both of the sides and even in the back-bend. It was really cool! The next class I wanted to find this feeling again and trying to find the same muscles again to work with. I have somewhat being able to do the same thing again but not with the same “Wow, I’m growing feeling”. Today it nearly came back, I could engage the muscles and lift myself upwards and sideways at the same time and also backwards. And I actually see the wall behind me! I even had the same feeling in Cobra (without seeing the wall), like I was going forward upwards. In the last Savasana I could then feel that my ribs actually moved when I breathed, cool thing to feel! And I believe that it comes from the muscles that I have started to engage.
I am longing for tomorrows class where I can continue to work on the small things in every pose, that is one of the great things with doing yoga each day.
