Stretching breeds more stretching #yoga

Man, sometimes when you stretch you get a little “Tourotte syndrome” backlash; you can’t stop stretching! I’d been a little balled up lately, prone to sitting in a hunch for long stretches of time lately, photoshopping obsessively. So yesterday I added three urdhva D’s at the wall. I set my timer for a single interval of 10/60. This means I have 10 seconds to place my hands, wrists braced against wall & fingers pointed outward, after I hit “go”. After each backbend I reward my body with the same interval in a mini savasana. It’s awesome. It’s so easy to completely let go, relax and examine, in that amount of time.

After that I did the normal 3-stage walk in & five drop backs, then finishing. And let me tell you, my shoulders needed more yoga today. It ended up being more of a restorative, because of no hit and hardly any vinyasa, but that’s ok. It’s just what I needed. I’d have taken a rest day, but I have to do the retail thing tomorrow.
