Yes, today, I easily touched my toes in Kapotasana (with assistance from Val). If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, then you know it’s not the first time I got hands to feet. BUT….it is the first time that they got there without the searing feeling of skin, tendons and muscles tearing, and without the numbness that followed. It was AWESOME!!
And it’s all because of the bed-hang-with-weights. Which is all because of my friend, Melissa, who practices at Val’s, and Val, who told me that what I needed to do was to open my UPPER back, because my lower back is open enough (for now), but my upper back was barely bending.
So, today, I told Val that I had gotten my right toe on my own yesterday. So, she came over to me and put my left hand on my left foot….and then my right. Made perfect sense. And I breathed. And I breathed!
Not that any of this matters. But it kinda does. Not that it should. But it kinda does just the same.
