I'm officially on the mend. I slept for over 10 hours last night and woke up feeling energetic. I had a great practice with Primary and my Intermediate poses, plus backbends.

I was a bit worried about backbends. Throughout my practice, my back was feeling cranky. Dropbacks were actually okay, but I've definitely lost some of my 'standing up' Mojo. I was determined to try three times, even if I ended up armflailing and falling backwards. I did a lot of that, but I still tried. :-) I'll get it back!

My Big Awesome for the day was getting rid of the block in Laghu Vajrasana. I lowered down to it once, then shoved it aside and tried four more times, coming all the way to the floor and back up! I thought I might have lost strength in this pose while I was sick. Apparently, laying around and watching DVDs is great prep for Laghu. Who knew?! ;-)

If lying around watching DVDs is good for Laghu, I'm definitely going to be good at it! That'll give them a shock in the Mysore class when I add the full expression of that on after Supta K tonight.

Now let me just google to find out what the heck 'Laghu Vajrasana' actually is . . .

Very glad you're on the mend.

@Ragdoll and Claudia
Now that I'm back to having no spare time for DVDs, I actually miss the 'downtime.'

And Laghu is back to being difficult. Coincidence? ;-)
