may my roots hold me


My gentle slide back into practise
 has had rather quick results
as far as my muscles are concerned
The pigeon pose/kapotasana, that I added last night
hit that piriformis just right
and I got some relief from my aching leg and hip
So feeling a bit cocky this morning
I added the tree pose/vrikshaasana
As expected I found that my right side is much stronger than my left
(as it is in my brain)
struggle

I think this is enough adding of poses
now to continue to show up
do
breathe
find balance

for my aching heart

  7. I love the tree pose, Suz. I let the roots dig down and stretch up and feel, well sort of like a tree, gracious and braving the elements. Keep at it, it does help. Now I just have to follow my own advice.

  10. Beautiful, organic poetry. You write very well. Enjoyed the yoga poem and it spoke volumes to me about our aching bodies and how we persevere to get stronger. Thank you!
