EDIT: JUST REALIZED THE AWKWARD BACKPACK PLACEMENT, ZOMG.
Day 2: Reverse Warrior, Parsva Virabhadrasana
Today has been a strange day. I’ve been trying to view my thoughts and actions as an outsider more and more since beginning 7 Habits, and I’ve realized that I think way too much for my own good. I’m always hyper-aware of the way I behave myself and look, and I think in the end that’s what makes me so awkward/shy/weird around other people. I need to work on the things I say and the effect they have on other people without thinking too much about it, as impossible as it seems.
Reverse warrior is another one of my favorite poses because of how it opens up my chest and heart. I’m fond of the good stretch in my back, as well.
I’ve had this paralyzing fear of my head not being in front view of my body ever since I was little and fell on my back to get the wind knocked out of me a few times too many. Yoga’s getting me used to that sensation of facing my fear. I feel I’m slowly conquering it, considering inversions and anything with a backbend are currently my favorite poses.
