Namaste my friend

Thursday, April 23, 2015

Namaste... Can I just say I'm currently loving yoga. I had a hysterectomy in December and when I had the green light to work out again, I had no core strength. I was sitting in the back, hating yoga. The instructor tells the class to "define the intention for the night"... My answer in my head "uh... I'm here, that's good enough"... And I kept going. Sometimes I took the child's poise option (they always suggest that poise, if you need to stop and rest)... But I kept going. I took the modified moves. Tonight, there was no modifications, and it felt good.

    There are clips on YouTube from Priscilla Patrick when she did her Yoga series on PBS in the 90s. Her studio is at www.yogaone.com and she is now 73. She said she lived in Okinawa and was in a car accident and had horrible back pain and the doctors couldn't help her so one said "Try the Yoga Master in town." She said she went and six weeks later she was pain free and she was sold on Yoga for life. She started teaching a class on the local Air Force base channel and that is how she got started teaching. She is 5'6" and one hundred ten pounds and really strong. She has 3 grown children.
