Week 166: Sleep or Yoga?
Sleep or yoga?
It has been a busy couple weeks. I feel a cold coming on and want to make sure it doesn’t progress.
I ask myself how is the best way to take care of myself right now.
The best compromise was to do a restorative yoga practice. Truly, it was the best choice!
As the first session with Michelle, I was delighted to have her take me through some amazing postures with the bolster. I purchased one about a year and a half ago and have done some basic things with it. This practice was exactly what I needed for rest but also for some education!
Poses that I’ve never done on a bolster included:
Supported Hip Opener
Supported Child's Pose
Supported Legs Up the Wall into Supported Plow Pose
Supported Back Bend
By far the supported back bend was the most vigourous and rewarding. The release through my hips was amazing!
So the answer for me this week was - YOGA! I wonder if that will ever change?!

I've practiced yoga since I was a pre-teen and have always found it to keep me centered. I will be a teacher one day and this is my journey to discover teaching and practice.
