For no explainable reason, I had a lovely practice this morning. Finally I am beginning to feel a little more like my old self. It was refreshing and has made me feel optimistic. However, I will no doubt have a rubbish practice tomorrow, having just said that.

My vinyasas felt strong, forward bends were supple, shoulder was just about holding out. Twists were ok and my spine not nagging.My head went to the floor with ease in the prasaritas and H got my hands to the floor. In the seated poses I had some great adjustments and alignment felt good. After Navasana I decided to have a go at bhujapidasana. Getting in and crossing my ankles was fine, but I didn’t bother to try and lower my head to the floor as even starting to engage the required muscles made my shoulder hurt. It’s all good though, one day at a time.

At the end of practice I was even able to push up into a decent (for me) back bend. L then helped me drop back and whilst concentrating on relaxing the shoulders, keeping the chest lifted and legs strong, even they felt OK!!

One thought that did occur to me whilst enjoying my practice was that it is great not to have piriformis pain… however, if I ever get as far as baddha konasana again, I fear it may return.

A great morning 🙂
