Day ninety seven

So this is for Thursday, yesterday. We went to dinner followed by first tap (The Whipsaws) where we danced the night away so my blog time was sort of cut out…I went to Bikram right after work. Sometimes when class gets started during the breathing I kinda think to myself ‘why am I here?! This is going to suck and be hard and I just want to go lie on my floor.’ but then of course I stay and it’s awesome and by the end I think ‘why was I thinking this would suck? It’s great!’.

Thursday’s pose is…
Camel Pose
Ustrasana(Sanskrit)

Benefits :
Camel Pose creates maximum compression of the spine, which stimulates the nervous system.

It also improves flexibility of the neck and spine, relieves backache, and helps degenerative spinal problems such as kyphoscoliotic deformities and cervical spondylosis.

By stretching the abdominal organs, Camel helps constipation, and it also stretches the throat and thyroid and parathyroid glands.

Sometimes this pose makes me feel sick and sometimes it feels great! Its surprise each and every time.

I have challenged myself to do yoga everyday for one year and thought I'd blog about it. I have been practicing yoga on and off and back and forth for about 9 years and I have decided that it is time for me to really delve in and figure out what it's all about, if it is something I want to make part of my life. I also thought this might put some discipline in to my day and be a fun way to express my thoughts and share some pictures that may or may not have anything directly to do with yoga.
