I was excitedly working on scorpion when I got slammed with an obnoxious head cold. For. Nearly. Seven. Days.
Now that my nose is less runny, my cough less dominant, and my brain less fuzzy, I can finally step back on the mat for more serious “me” time. In my game plan is a nice little sequence of backbenders from YogaJournal, which promise to help open my tight upper back and unleash my bending potential one day at a time. My excitement is returning. And today’s brief excursion on the mat brought more relief than I had anticipated. I think I’ll always find how quickly our body tightens and shrinks incredible. Yoga is a marvelous antidote.
