doing yoga again
I've decided that I NEED to start doing yoga again. I used to do yoga when the Angie was little, 2 or 3 times a week. Then life got busier, I'd miss one day here and there, then one week, then 15 years.... I wasn't hugely good at it, and I was significantly younger then, so I really don't have high expectations for now. I stretch pretty thoroughly after jogging or working out - but it's more a stretch the muscles I just used kind of thing. I have been seriously tight and creaky in an overall way, and stressed in my upper back and shoulders. I keep all my stress, anger, hostility, aggression bottled up in my upper, back, shoulders and neck - not good for someone with headache issues.
I started this morning. Three sets of sun salutations (no offense to my catphew - but downward dog can be amazing) I'm going to set a goal of sun salutations 3 mornings a week to ease into things. I'm not a social workout person, but may at some point take classes again but that is a far of some point right now.
