An InfernoWrap is a heat wrap thingy for injuries that is sort of like a heating pad, only not. I got my hands on an one when I was about six months into practicing Ashtanga yoga and my wrists were killing me. I was desperate because I loved the practice, in spite of [...]

Yoga dreams seem to be going around the Cyber Shala lately. (Here’s one from Grimmly that made me smile.) Last night I joined in the fun and dreamed that I was doing Primary, ah, my beloved Primary, with full foreward bends and NO hamstring pain. Oh, it was so wonderful to be stretched [...]

So, I took a week off my practice. Then ladies holiday arrived, so I took a couple more days off. Ten days in all. Ten days!!! The most [...]
First, thanks for the bloggy support on my previous post. Grimmly says it all with “hamstrings are a bugger.” Ain’t that the truth.
Anyway, it’s Monday morning and I’m not doing yoga. Ugh, I hate it. I feel stiff and cold and I know a rousing round of Primary would make everything better—everything except this [...]
A while back, when I first got started in this Ashtanga thing, I pulled my right hamstring attachment, not a bad pull, but enough to scare me into backing off, which was a good thing. I spent a month doing wimpy half poses, holding onto the shins in any foreward bend, plus trigger point [...]
