Going Yoga.

Monday, April 18, 2011
This morning I picked up a yoga+ magazine in the boo boo reading basket. Haha... I remember packing this with me when I moved to Texas and never got a chance to read it. A few weeks ago I was chatting with a sephora employee about anti-aging creams and it lead onto yoga talk about her friend who's been doing yoga during her whole treatment until she got better. I was like eh meh blah Idk... until I went to research it on breastcancer.org and found this:

I've been having problems with my spine/lumbar region since forever before the diagnosis and wondered if these yoga moves will help. I should consult with my doctor first before doing any crazy moves. From the breast cancer site it read that there's a risk for fracture for people with bone mets. I think I should be fine since I am taking bone strengthener injections in my treatment.
Every other day I have my sister step on my back and after last night I don't want to do that anymore. There was some crackling and popping in my lower back I never heard before so that totally freaked me out. =/ 
Anyway, I tried the 6 poses from Samana Vayu "Breath of Balance"article, it was very refreshing. I need to look for a class though and make sure I am doing them right without hurting myself.

I always prefer to start my yoga in morning when the mind is calm and fresh and the movements can be done with ease and vitality. The physical yoga benefits of practicing in the morning include stretching the muscles, awakening the body, improving circulation and stimulating the mind.
