Every other day

I am still very “chesty” and tired from the lack of  a deep nights sleep, so I don’t have the energy for a full practice two days running. As soon as I began to do Surya A, I knew it wasn’t going to happen, so decided to do standing and see what happened. I ended up doing a pick and mix from seated, mainly forward bends, Mari C and then tried to get my hips to open up again with a longer held than usual Baddha Konasana and some pigeon poses, I can feel the tightness. I need to do backbends every day just to keep them where they are, let alone to progress, so did some slow Salbhasana and Dhanurasana’s before turning over for bridges ans 4 ok ish UD’s. I didn’t have the strength left to resume the walking in experiments.

Last night was another fairly sleepless one, I think the backbends and practice in general is moving stuff in my chest, which I then spend until 3am coughing. I must have dropped off at some point then slept way way too late and ended up having to take a box of granola to work with me for breakfast!

Hopefully I will practice tonight, have a nice therapy day tomorrow and then manage a proper shala practice at AYL on Sunday, that’s the plan.

    I can’t sleep at all if I do backbends late in the day. Even the finishing sequence does not help. Are you sure it is just the cough, not the backbending agitation that keeps you awake?

    I quite often practice later in the day and sleep ok after.

    It feels like there is a weight on my chest, especially when I lay on my back, I never thought I would find Savasana impossible, but it is just now.
