Yoga


I'm glad to report that yoga this Friday was SO much better than last week :-) I had a really good session - I felt really strong but worked really hard. We did lots of dynamic poses and lots of sun salutation. And I finally saw some improvements in my Chaturanga Dandasana. This pose follows the plank. You basically roll your weight forward, lower yourself to the ground, roll over your toes and the stretch your torso up. It felt great when it was working and I can feel that my shoulders and back are definitely firming up, which is excellent.

I need to work on my warrior poses, as my pelvis area doesn't like these poses! Plus I really need some help on my yogic breathing. Any LJ friends out there who can advise? Plus, I want to start practising at home, but don't know how / where to start.

It was an excellent session and I've now bought a 10 lesson abo, so I'm signed up!
