auntiemeesh: (yoga tree)
I was just settling into a nice yoga routine last year when my move disrupted everything. For months I've been planning to get back at it, but somehow not quite doing anything. And with my back as sore as it is these days, a good stretching, core workout seems advisable (has in fact been advised by my doctor). So this morning I got off my duff and got to it.

What I learned:
* My abs have disappeared. A very short plank had my whole body trembling like crazy.
* Any sort of twisting motion was pretty painful for my back. By the time I was done, however, things felt a bit looser.
* Sciatica makes some of the poses a lot less pleasant than I remember.
* I wasn't super flexible to begin with and a year without any sort of deliberate stretching and bending activities hasn't helped.

I need to get back to doing this after work every day. Not least because Mal wants to play first thing in the morning so he spent the first ten minutes of the workout chewing on my knuckles.
