There are a couple of things that I don't like about the studio. I don't know how I didn't notice this last time, but the floor is carpeted. Gross. The second thing is that there are no mirrors. I find it much harder to correct myself without a mirror. We did a lot of work against the wall at the end of class. So I was all sweaty and dripping on the wall. Again, gross.
I managed one forearm stand, but it was very short because I was so fatigued. When she said we were going to do peacock I laughed at her the way my students used to laugh at me. I tried, but it didn't happen. I was already worn out. At least I had fun doing bujapidasana. I tried to straighten my legs into dragonfly (as directed by the teacher), but fell back on my bum.
I have discovered that camel is the one pose that I am really not comfortable doing since I got pierced. I can do it, but I feel as though I am choking. There are other back bends, so I just shouldn't do it. Speaking of my piercing, I have bruised my neck. I'm not sure if it was me clowning around with deaf man's pose, doing a bunch of camels in class, or extreme twisting, but I have a couple of purple marks on either side of the bottom disc, and it hurts a bit. I'll be giving it a good soak again today, and maybe even put some arnica on it.
