Well, the little article I wrote yesterday about my bad back apparently touched a lot of other bad backs! In fact, many of these “bad backs” wrote back! (Sorry I couldn’t resist!)
You’ve already offered 20 comments on this subject and more keep coming in. This is what I really like: a stimulating dialog between you and me, an intelligent exchange that can be read by people all over the globe. Anyone so inclined can join into the discussion. Ah, the new world of the Internet! Things will never be the same.
Do you know what else happened? A gentleman from Denmark gave me a homework assignment. Can you believe it? Here’s what he says: “I am happy for your recovery but your story/information is really not of much use to others unless you would be so kind as to elaborate on what kind of Yoga and what specific exercises have made the difference. I could personally not manage to try out all different styles of Yoga and all exercises to rediscover what you learned. Please help!”
Point well taken. I think he’s absolutely right. Here’s what I promise to do very soon… like next week. I will write in some detail about what kind of yoga I have practiced, and what seemed to help the most. I will talk about a couple of setbacks I had in my yoga training because I pushed too hard, and how I learned to be more prudent. I will further talk about how I set up my schedule to ensure that I do my exercises regularly. I will find a couple of links to yoga routines on youtube for those of you who don’t have easy access to yoga instruction. Finally, I will go out in the garage where I have my little dojo set up and demonstrate on video the simple yoga exercises I have incorporated into our aikido warmups!
Ok? Is it a deal? Good!
Thanks guys and gals!
