Remember its YOUR body and YOUR practice, so do what YOUR body needs! I find that somedays I really want to physically work my body in 'simple' poses, by activating my thigh muscles and pulling my toes up to the sky, I actively pull my navel back to my spine whilst breathing Ujay breath, as I breathe in I lengthen and then deepen on the exhale. Try this and see how different it feels. Bend your knees and feel how it feels for your heartbeat to pump on your thighs, then slowly work to straightening the legs, or don't!
After my practice today, I knew I had overstretched on the folds, hyperextension on the knees, overextension of my ego? I'm grateful for my practice, I met a guy called Al Green and sang Paul Simon riding my bike home in the rain grinning as my face was drenched. I do hope my serotonins are giving off the right message that doesn't say 'looney'.
