Week one of daily yoga was filled with discoveries.
The most surprising is that I was oblivious to the way my heavy computer bag had gotten me in the habit of lifting my shoulder ALL THE TIME! Here’s what I am doing to my body. (Not my skeleton.)
I really need to resist the urge to intensify my yoga until I heal this. Other observations.
- Pride of my past flexibility had me over-rotating in my first week.
- My migraines were practically nonexistent except for one stressful day that I felt too rushed for morning yoga. I managed evening yoga though I was in pain.
- I love the way my body feels even after a short practice.
- I started craving healthier foods.
Next week’s focus: unclenching when stressed and relaxing into symmetry. The clenching is both physical and emotional.
By focusing my attentions there during my practice I should be able to heal that shoulder.
