I practiced. It was better than yesterday. Slowly I get back to the strength and flexibility that I had before my little break. I remained on the mat, I was focused on the breath. The challenge was to accept that I wasn't that flexible and not so strong either. I didn't omit an asana, I did them all. Longer than usual I sat in lotus pose and breathed deeply and evenly.

I was concentrated and this is a form of strength too, inner strength.

I can be happy. My back still hurts, but only a little bit. To go slowly into the poses is important.
That's what I've learned from the last injury.

The sun starts shining. I will walk downtown. Boyfriend will come with me. He is back from Sweden and busy with his emails as usual.

Something came to me while reading your blog entry...and it was..that "sometimes we have to take a step back in order to go forward" and it seems to be true for you at this time. Lessons...
Wishing you the best always~

Hi Tracy,

yoga has so many aspects.I discover new ones at the moment. I'm also happy that I'm able to do meditation, to sit. This I can do also when the body needs time out.

It's an interesting journey with many surprises.

Hope you are well and best wishes.
