Work harder than ever,
whenever I promise the body, I will do my best.
We won’t do every pose possible with the yoga wheel, we only work on poses that benefit to our bodies.
Some just too risky to the ligaments and tendons, some are just too “fun” .

Kukkuṭāsana, it is mostly through the difficult times, we find stillness, we find lightness.
Good old scoliosis... Despite always having an extremely flexible Lumbar spine, my upper back is pretty much the exact opposite. This has led me to stay away from most backbends these days. This was a rare occasion and as you can see I’m floating between backbends to play around with what feels good. Sadly, I couldn’t find the sweet spot I intended on as I dumped into my lower back once again where I naturally bend into within seconds. Despite pushing my chest forwards and straightening my legs, I felt stuck in my Thoracic spine as though cement is bolted between my shoulder blades. This is due to my good old scoliosis between my shoulder blades. Hence why I didn’t stay long... this battle has left me to reduce my backbends and take care of my spine. I’m slowly learning to be a lot more gentle with myself than I use to be. I don’t go as deep and instead do my backbends with a hell a lot of love before I end up with lower back pain thanks to my ego. In this practice, I was attempting to feel through my spine to try and open up the cement in my upper back but when it didn’t work as planned, I came back to my child’s pose. I then stuck to my favourite, cat & cow + twist = my magic cure to release. For me, my main aim in practice these days is to simply feel better and to attempt to free those tense areas. To go to the poses we avoid because that is where we need the practice the most but with love and kindness to avoid creating injuries instead of healing them. My backbends here aren’t focused on deep but on releasing the tension created by my scoliosis in my upper back. Nowadays when it doesn’t feel as planned it’s often a backbend over a bolster instead. It has taken me time but the more I practice the more I take it slow. I don’t focus on being a gymnast or an acrobat despite the bit of pressure of being a teacher but about continuing to listen to what actually feels good. For those of you who come to my classes, my hope is that I bring that across when I teach. Listen to your body, not to your ego. 🤙
