"Man is the most intelligent of animals, and the most silly." -Diogenes
Finally did some live FB Yoga yesterday for the first time in my new place after not having my routine for months/surgery...as well as exercise.
Holy cow!!! It was much needed, it took me a few days of procrastinating bc I was having a hard time mentally with how my body probably has "changed" over the past few months...and that's just part of lifes processes we have to accept.
For me it was questioning if all the work I did the prior yr/living in a truck was "for no reason." But that isnt the case at all, I dont have to do ALL of the work over again.
Just needed to find that motivation, my body kept telling me "HEY DO THE THING!!! YOU KNOW IT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD." The past few days, I just ignored it.
I finally accepted I'm not as flexible as I was, my balance is going to suck, and I'm deff not as strong as I was...i got onto my mat, and 45min later I was able to execute a Pincha Mayurasana as a final pose just bc I hadn't done it in so long...I fell alot, I couldn't balance in warrior 2 on my left side, but could do a standing knee to chest on my left side??? (Whaaa...)
I also still have alot of control with zombie pressing head/forearm stands, and coming down too.
For no reason my butt...every reason.
And muscle memory is amazing...your body is able to say, "I remember this." Sometimes it just takes your mind a min to catch up and go along the same route too, but I'm glad I arrived at my mat, my whole attitude has shifted since.
But...my glutes are killin!!! I prob shouldn't have done so many fire hydrants on both sides of my butt...this pose helps stretch things out abit...but I'm still walking around like a Penguin LOL
I'm silly, we are all silly, sometimes the way we think is also silly when you look back at a mindset you held for a longtime/breifly...as long as you are laughing now it's all that matters.
