Accepting the pain
I don't think anymore that my back pain will disappear that fast, perhaps it will disappear never. The words of my orthopedic are still in my mind: It would be a pity if you gave up your practice. And he added. Most people with back pain do nothing.
I practice regularly again, it seems so. I did even a second practice yesterday. Quickly I want to get back to my level of 2 years ago. It's too frustrating not being able to do so many asanas. But there are highlights. Yesterday night I was able to do yoga nidrasana. Wow. What a feeling.
In the morning I focus on back bending. In the evening I focus on forward bending asanas.
One practice is over and I'm looking forward to the next one.
During my morning practice I don't want to take pictures. It interrupts my practice and I need the heat in my body when I practice. I don't want to cool down. This means stiffness and it increases the danger to injure myself.
It might be different in the evening.
Urdhva dhanurasana was great today. What else can I wish.
- Getting up at 6 am (today it was 2 hours later)
- Drinking coffee and writing my journal.
- Preparing breakfast for my E and sitting with him
- In the meantime the washing machine is running, the bed is made. All these routines happen on autopilot.
- Then I practice.
- Breakfast, reading my daily
- Pranayama and Meditation is planned for the afternoon.
I miss the yoginis, but my home practice is safer and more intensive. I learned to concentrate on my practice for 90 min.
Wow, I feel so good. Where is the next horse to ride?
