Despite the ongoing shoulder and hamstring issues, the part of my body which seems to have suffered most from not practicing is my spine. What used to feel like a lovely twist in paravritta parsvokonasana currently feels like trying to bend a rusty chain! Urdvha Danurhasana is also pretty ropey.

I am praticing to Navasana at the moment, I did first side of Mari D today, which is an addition to last week. There is some shoulder improvement, which is heartening.

For the first time ever I was pleased to be practicing next to the radiator, although when I moved to the finishing room it felt comparatively cold, a one minute savasana was all I could manage.
