Birds flyin high, you know how I feel...

So a neighbor friend of mine joined my gym. To celebrate her first week at the gym we decided to take a Yoga class together. I hadn't been to Yoga in so long. I had a groin injury last year that took forever too heal, and it broke my Yoga habit. So today it was as if I was starting from scratch.

All of my balancing muscles...gone.

All of my limberness...gone.

All of my stamina...gone.

But, I still loved it anyway. You know why? There's that one pose. You know the pose. Where you lay on the floor, on your back. Your eyes are closed. You are only concentrating on breathing. Everything melts away. And you go into the pre-sleep state. And when you are finally told to open your eyes and you sit up, your body feels so relaxed, so fantastic, so easy.

All of your aches and pains...gone.

All of your tension...gone.

And your easy smile...it's back.

...well at least until the kids get home from school

I know the feeling well, but like you it's been far too long since I felt it.

Well... the yoga feeling. I have the kids getting off the bus feeling every day.

"Corpse Pose"

Morbid sounding, but WONDERFUL feeling!

I got up ONCE last week and did yoga, trying to save my back. I'm going for twice this week. :)
