Sharing is Caring
This past week my practice has actually consisted not only of studying solo but practicing yoga with my friend! After coming back from dinner one night, we went back to my place to grab some books for a long night of studying. We ended up playing jump rope with a Hookah hose and stretching. She is an athlete and sometimes finds herself sore and tense so we did some poses. After our impromptu school girl moment she complained of her calfs and back giving her some trouble. Thus commenced our yoga session for the night. Restorative supine poses, poses that stretch the calf and feet (sitting on our legs and feet). She didn't like those AT ALL! We also did some backward bends. Her favorite was cobra (she WOULD NOT stop hissing). We ended with downward facing dog; a pose I showed her a few days prior. She was still having trouble keeping her legs straight but ml are miles right? After leaving my place to study, we were pretty productive that night if I do say so myself. Yoga alone is nice, very reflective and centering. Yoga with her was not as contemplative, but it was nice to see her improve, and leave feeling a little more loose than she was hours before.
