I've been taking a bit easier the past few days as I have been waking up to some nasty back spasms. They are actually occurring on the opposite side of my back from where I have/had my injury.
Yesterday I practiced IntuFlow Intermediate only.
This morning, again with IntuFlow Intermediate as well as starting to practice the Tumbleweed Prasara Flow. I have two things working against me right now. (1) Yoga first thing in the morning when your body is tight is not an easy thing to do. (2) Not having a lot of space to work in also makes Prasara, known for its fluid transitions, somewhat difficult to perform.
Being new to this, I focused mostly on the individual postures. I now have a new respect for Sleeping Warrior pose after watching Scott Sonnon explain the counterpoints to the movement. It's not a restful position at all, even though it appears to someone else that you might be sleeping! Plow is difficult for me this early in the morning with all of my current back tightness.
It's a start. I feel good. I'm glad I woke up early to practice this. I may opt for some bodyweight movements tomorrow depending on how my back feels, otherwise it'll be the bells. That's it. Off to work now. Only day in the office this week! =)
