Yoga with Witold

Today I took a private yoga session with Witold at Yogasana.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I can resume yoga classes. I'll go back to Level I. About a year ago I was poised to progress to their Level II classes. So it goes.

Witold gave me a routine to do at home that should help to strengthen both of my legs evenly. He said I should do it every day. It entails a sequence of triangle pose, warrior, and a modified pose that I forget the name of (it's sort of a combination of triangle and warrior). He also showed me how I can modify child's pose -- one of the last areas of flexibility I need to recover is stretching my quads when they're weight bearing and this pose is it.

I'm really happy to be back in yoga! I especially like the notion of working both sides of my body evenly. My hope is that it will help to restore the parity of the size of my thighs ; )

Glad to see your doing better. Hope the pain gets better. Only a few more weeks and you should be feeling fine.
