It’s been 18 days since surgery and I’m itching to go back to the studio. I’ve been practicing at home, yes, but I miss the energy and excitement that comes with attending class. I take in the good vibes my fellow yogis and our teachers send out and carry them with me long after practice.
As much as I’d like to rejoin the vibtant and energetic community of committed yogis, my body is still not ready for a rigorous flow practice. I’m taking it slow because, even as the external wounds have healed, my internal organs are still smarting from the recent invasion.
So I’d have to listen to my body and wait a little longer. It will tell me what to do. In the meantime, I’d have to be content with reading yoga blogs and books, and watching yoga videos to keep me inspired.
