It's been quite a while since my yoga buddy M and I went to the studio together. She had to undergo a minor surgery that prevented her from strenuous activities. So while she was gone, I did my yoga at home.
Today was the day she went back and just like an old habit, it felt like we didn't skip sessions for a long time. We went through the sequence like old-timers except that parts of my muscles and joints kinda creaked like a machine that badly needed oiling. When I did my home yoga, I didn't practice the full Ashtanga sequence but would just choose the easier ones, thus, my tightness and slight inflexibilty. I felt stretched and sore after 2 attempts at headstand. Ooh.
Still, we had a great sesh. We've always preferred Ashtanga for the sequence of poses that we have already memorized over the many variations of Vinyasa. After what felt like a thorough work out, we rewarded ourselves with organic brew, pizza margherita and cornetto.
