Finally, one late night when my mind was working too much to sleep, my yoga mat miraculously rolled out in front of me and the next thing I knew it, my arms were sore from sun salutations. Here is how yoga helped me recharge in the past week.
Let the Cracks Lead the WayAfter two weeks of yoga-free days, my body has reverted itself back to a form it wasn't used to. Absolute stiffness. I was so stiff that almost every pose I did made a crack, or ten. But the cracks felt more like a symphony of freedom than a symphony of agony. For some, cracks sound revolting, but if you do it yourself, it feels oh so good. Even just with standing up and stretching your hands over your head can do so much for your back. Let the cracks lead the way and give back to your body, just for this tiny moment.
Breathe it All In
Listen to Your Body
Restarting something again isn't a bad thing. If you fail and will have to start all over again, it's alright. Failure gives you another shot to start over, to start better, with a clean slate. Never give up, and keep going; even if you have to start again.
