Yoga for Scoliosis: Day 21 & 22

Yesterday, I was very sick. I left work early around lunchtime, I ate spicy Indian food for lunch in hopes of cleaning out my sinuses, and I laid on the couch like a crumpled up blog for most of the rest of the day. I promise, promise, promise that I did end up doing some LIGHT yoga later that night after I ate some soup.

 

30 Day Yoga Challenge: Days Twenty-One and Twenty-Two

Last night’s yoga was mostly just doing a lot of neck circles and seated spine twists. My shoulders felt SO bad after being sick — I had slept all scrunched up, laid on the couch all curled up, and generally felt uncomfortable. I laid on my back and hugged my knees up, doing some rocking back and forth to massage my back. I tried to do child’s pose, but ahhh, wasn’t a good idea to lay my head upside down like that. I ended up falling asleep on the floor during savasana and that was that for the night. Not my best work, but I did it.

Today, I feel much better. Not 100% but more than well on my way to being back to normal. I had a lot of chores and stuff to do at home after work, since I had been out sick for a bit. After all was said and done and dinner was eaten and tomorrow’s lunch was made, it was about 10 at night. I sliiiinked off the couch, and did another 10 minutes of yoga on my own while watching some documentary clips about The Things. There is a crink in my back right in the middle of my shoulders and I can’t quite get to it, no matter how many cat cows I do.

 

Other Notes:

  • Back to business tomorrow! I’m in the home stretch for this 30 days.
  • My hamstrings are also INCREDIBLY tight this week, I wonder if it’s just because I’ve literally been laying on the couch and that’s it?
  • The Thing is a great movie.

Namaste and see you tomorrow!
