Sickly Sadhana

  • 3:40 AM–Alarm sounds.  Body and mind agree that staying in bed is the answer, determination says that someone is asking the wrong question.
  • Bloated belly.  Belly focus is not inward focus.
  • Low back and thighs still incredibly tight from Friday.  Allowing Saturday’s sadhana to slide was an unkindness.
  • Despite belly bloat and violin strings for muscles, mind remains relatively quiet.
  • Belly bloat approaching pain rather than discomfort.
  • Very difficult to find alignment.
  • Bhujangasana, correct alignment centers weight on the lower third of the pelvis.  Incredibly strong and stable foundation for this posture.
