For the first time since March, I can interlace my fingers over my head with my arms straight (Baddha Gulyasana). I can sit in Virasana (hero) with just one block under my bottom. This is where I was before I got Lyme disease last year.
Yesterday in class we did Trikonasana (triangle), Parsvakonasana (extended side angle), and Ardha Chandrasana (half moon). Then we did the revolved versions (add the word Parivrtta to the front of each asana name). I’ve always had trouble with revolved standing poses. But wowee, I was able to do all of them, hampered only on one side of Parivrtta Ardha Chandrasana by the tail end of sciatica.
I was on the end of the row, so nobody could see me tear up with joy and relief.
