I started practicing yoga decades ago.
I loved it.
It was all kinds - Hatha, Yin, Kundalini, Meditative. I even threw some Pilates in there. Each with its distinct benefits.
I stopped as life got busier and my MS made my balance really bad.
Some days I teeter around for no reason, other than my brain and spinal cord attacking my body. There was not going to be any one-leg balancing, as I used to do.
But thanks to some gentle pushing from my sister, I have started again.
I don't need an adaptive class, as I am still mostly able, and thankfully am familiar with the types of poses done in each type of class, so am able to foresee what each class will involve.
I am back in yin yoga (where you hold the poses for extended periods of time).
It started today and I feel excited and refreshed. My body knew exactly what to do. And I could do it for hours. As if I had never stopped.
I feel good. Thank you Vayusha Yoga Studio.
Crappy balance aside, I'm feeling pretty proud of myself!
