Day 4 of week 2 and it’s pretty full on. Not so much the practices but the relentlessness of it. Normally I would be stopped by now, the four or five days then a good break if at least that length. But here I am, getting up an hour earlier each morning to stretch in all directions. Today the focus was on upward dog, learning the right position not to strain the lower back. It feels good this course. What I need, and taking me beyond my normal normality.
