I have something wrong with my neck. Every few months, something insanely painful happens to my neck. I have yet to find out what exactly happens that causes so much pain. But I have a few guesses. Anyway, two days ago this mysterious pain returned and as of today has not left.
As you all know, I am on a quest to find inner peace. Yoga has been on my mind as a path to find that. Well, this nasty neck issue got me thinking how much yoga could help me in other ways besides finding my inner peace, including helping my neck. So, I searched around online for more information. Google has failed to present to me a yoga class in Idaho Falls that looks professional enough for my tastes. So, I am taking matters in to my own (palms pressed together) "hands".
I found THIS wonderful site, that looks good for a beginner like me. It has different poses listed, complete with pictures and information about the pose. You can also look up poses that help a specific ailment, as in "neck pain", and it brings up a list of poses that would help with relieving neck pain.
Other than taking a class (which doesn't seem to be an option in my life right now), I don't know how to go about studying the full art and practice of yoga. So I have not done it. But I have decided, it is better to do something than nothing! Trying to teach myself a few poses probably (I HOPE!) won't do me any harm. So, I am going for it.
In the meantime, if any of you dear friends and blog readers have any insight or information, please (PLEASE!) pass along your wisdom.
(I absolutely love that greeting, and I kind of just want to use it all the time. I know this isn't what it literally means, but I have heard it expressed as, "The good in me greets the good in you." Why would you not want to greet someone that way? It is just beautiful!)
Have a Lovely Weekend. - [image: Brooklyn Heights] What are you up to this weekend? We are going out for Vietnamese food, and the boys and I have gotten into playing Sushi Go, so...
