Breaking Muscle posted a wonderful article on healthy yoga practice. So much of yoga, real yoga, is the mentality, the breath, the mindfulness we bring to our practice. The importance of being comfortable in a posture is why it takes me about twice or sometimes three times as long to go through a series of poses with someone who is new to yoga. I spend a lot of time making sure they feel good and safe in each and every pose--including savasana! In my own personal practice, I know when and where I need supportive tools so if I need a block or a strap (and that varies from day to day), I know immediately to grab one and how to use it correctly. There's a lot more to yoga than stretching into poses.

Speaking of, I had a very nice yoga session last night. It'd been a week! Felt good.

What didn't feel good were the bizarre and way out of cycle uterine cramping and small spotting that hit about 7pm, followed the intense stomach pains that kept me awake from 2:00 to 4:00am. I'm still getting stomach spasms, and I'm afraid to eat anything even though I'm pretty hungry.

What the fuck, body.
