on the mat is a state of mind
I took a three day break from yoga this week and though I am distressed by how this may affect my ‘stats’ for the month (only 20 classes so far!) I figured it would be good for me. Work has picked up significantly, and I took some time to rest and repair. My body was starting to feel a little achy, and sometimes doing nothing is the best medicine.
Unfortunately, when I hit the mat today – it was like I was back at square one. I felt uncoordinated and weak, my mind was a jumble, I was looking around at everyone and everything, I couldn’t catch my breath and I was generally annoyed. I don’t know what this means, other than that I won’t be taking any more extended absences. Maybe it was the class, maybe it was me… who knows. I’d like to say that I could just accept it for the experience it provided me, but that’s just not where my head is today. I’m trying to pull myself out of this funk, and though I don’t know what that will take, I am determined to power through.
In it, as always.
