I woke up in more pain this morning than I have in a long time.
And it's not the regular, lower back pain I wake up to everyday.
My upper body and shoulders were aching! And that from only 20 minutes of sun salutations yesterday.
Talk about humbling.
But also talk about excitement. I feel like my muscles have been sedentary for far too long. So for those of you who think yoga is all about stretching, and breathing, and oms, think again. There is strength and toning to be had! So if you woke up this morning a little bit sore like myself, embrace it.
Sore Muscles = Worked Muscles
Even with the soreness, I did two short sequences this morning. A 10 minute awaken and energize set of sun salutations, and then 10 minutes of stress free yoga (mainly focusing on my hamstrings and lower back tension). I feel good today.
