There are many possible titles to this post, Stiff as a safe, Body on strike or something similar.
Woke up this morning, I could wiggle my toes and fingers, rest of the body on strike. Didn’t want to leave the bed. I used my strong willpower to just get it moving. I was dehydrated so I started to drink water and ate a small breakfast and grabbed my stuff for the 11am class.
The heater was back on again and it was one of the new teachers. She is getting better but I was glad I put myself in the frontrow, otherwise it would have been hard to focus.
Stiff, stiffer, stiffest is how I could describe my class, everything was stiff, legs, hips, stomach, shoulders, arms, head you name it and it was stiff. It felt like I am back on square one of my entire yoga practice. So it is just to work slow and ask the gently for some softening.
I am lining up my hips, in Separete leg, forhead to knee and in the spine strengthing I can see how not in line I am and I am working on it a lot. In Full Locust I am not flying straight ahead I will fly to the right in circles with that curve in my body. No wonder it take time to get forward if I go in cirlces.
Toward the end of class I was thinking about what I have eaten last days, lots of suger and candy and the food in Vienna was not the best for me. I tend to eat things that have more suger in it when I am tired and stressed. Maybe it is all this suger and bad food that is now in my joints and making me stiff.
