Yoga in München

Today was "Hips Flow" with Rachel Nelson on hitPLAYyoga.

I am left to do yoga relatively late at night here in Munich, due to work schedule and sleep schedule. But I am on a second wind at this time of night, so it's not really a problem. I had been feeling a lot of tightness in my hip flexors, perhaps from sitting on an airplane for 11 hours, so I decided to try this class that sounded like it would be about the hips. It was a good class. There were a few moves in this class that I hadn't seen before. I will give you one example. Sit into a half chair with one ankle crossed over the other knee. Then, jump or slowly hop back into high plank without changing the leg position. Not so easy. The flip to a side plank, with the crossed leg on the higher side of the plank (i.e. you'd do side plank with right hand down, when you have left ankle crossed over right knee). It was interesting, and a bit of a new balance challenge.

I am struggling a bit with the emotional state, battling those feelings of not mattering, of not being worthy of whatever it is. Feeling like I am a big fake, and will eventually be found out, and kicked out into the street, and never let back in again, to anywhere.

It's a bit of up and down. And I do keep trying to find ways to get back up again, when I am down.

But I will tell you about that later.
