And how could I forget to mention this!!!
Because of my yoga class that I've been going to, I can now do a full back bend!
The first time I tried it (about 6 weeks ago) I could only get my hips off the ground. My shoulder and head were another story all together. They seemed glued to the floor. My arms just didn't have the strength to push up and I was sure that my back would never be able to arch in such an unnatural position. Miracles do happen my friend! In my last class I was on the floor in the bridge position ready to push up into nothing because it has never happened, when low and behold I raised my body, arched my back and realized that I was in a full back bend! Outbursts of joy are generally not done in a dimly lit yoga class, but believe me, every one knew what I had accomplished in that exact moment. My puny appendages are getting some muscle and the rest of me is getting bendy!
I love it!
