2008/10/01 - Two days of light training
Yesterday I just worked through the Intuflow intermediate sequence. Today I did Intuflow again and also a few rounds of the Cricket and SeeSaw flows. For the last while I have been pushing myself in the yoga postures to get deeper and really feel a stretch. Today I stayed just outside the discomfort range and I actually feel better and looser than normal. I keep forgetting that Scott's methods are not about force - as he likes to say: "Move to the tension, not through the tension." I hope I remember to keep following his advice rather than overdoing it as I tend to do. I ended off my session today with Savasana (the corpse posture) which basically entails lying quietly on your back while mentally observing your body. I forgot how pleasant it can be to just do...well, nothing really. I felt relaxed and mentally calm after the session - something I desperately need after the last few weeks of stress and tension.
