My sister Heidi, from Cookie Web Consulting was visiting over the weekend and after two days work, making considerable progress on an exciting and soon to be launched project, we went out to celebrate. On the way home, I slipped and fell down the wet steps leading into Stockholms tunnelbana, landing on my lower back. It was nothing dramatic and I’m up and about, albeit a little tender but it makes you wonder about the timing of these mishaps after such a high point in my yoga practice two days previous.
I was practicing at home and for the first time ever (at home or in the studio) I put and held my head to knee in Dandayamana Janushirasana. It was a pretty inspiring moment and such a big step forward in this asana after what seems like forever. Actually I’m not sure when I started Bikram Yoga so I must contact my home studio to find out. I can imagine there will be a setback in my practice while I mend, but who really knows until I get myself back in the hot room in a few days time. While falling asleep last night, I fantasised that by chance, I had unlocked a hidden block in my lower vertebra, liberated my left hip and transformed my practice. Oh to be supple for a stiff yogi is a dream.
