Yoga

Stretched and limber

Pulling, twisting, and contorting

Muscles warm and heart strong beating

Reaching up to the sky

And bowing down to the earth

Bracing, testing, pushing

To the limits of flexibility and back

Balance

Hands before heart

And one foot to the ground

Perfectly aligned

Focused and centered

 

Yoga is my favorite friend right now and I think it’s going to be for a while. It’s amazing how much it helps my shoulder and back, now I just have to keep doing it to keep the affects.

  1. SO proud that you can still do yoga with the pain!

    I myself, have never had need for yoga. JK… actually, it just looks WAY too painful and like I’d need to be coordinated or something 😉

    • LOL. Painful, no. Coordination… well it certainly helps. Especially for the balance poses. But you can build up coordination just like anything else, just takes practice. Actually yoga’s the only thing I can do right now that doesn’t hurt and helps lessen the pressure considerably. Definitely going again tomorrow.

  2. Great descriptive poem, and good to read that you have Yoga, as a friend and pain blocker…I hope the benefits continue to build for you.. . xPenx

  3. Nail in to a tea Jessica , that is just how I feel about Pilates!! Lovely lovely poem!!
