My left shoulder started aching about 2 weeks ago after yoga. (I think it was after my amazing backbend!) I called the doctor and an appointment was set for today. In between it started feeling better - I was so happy and returned to yoga on Saturday. Upon which I quickly learned that was a mistake. It has been painful, numb and tingly since Saturday. Thanks to Steve for his fine heat, ice wrapping skills. On Saturday, Carena, as always had such profound wisdom to offer. She told us to take what we learn from 'our mat time' into our life. She encouraged us not to run, run through life and then come exhuasted on our mat but rather let our mat time help us to learn to be healthier out in our life. Are you following me? So when today the doctor said, I had Shoulder Impingement Stage II I realized I had to listen to my body and the doctor. I want to run to yoga! I am so grateful for good health. I treasure my left arm/shoulder = my eyes - my mobility (to pick up the harness and go). So, we are grounded from yoga for a couple weeks and instead physical therapy and listening to our bodies and incorporating the many lessons I learn from yoga in my life. Cricket will miss yoga. She is happy when she hears the word yoga and finds comfort in her mat.
