The two have more in common than just the sound of their name. Both are in a relationship with the force of the body and wisdom. I’m not a die hard STAR WARS fan but I do love Yoda.
“When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not.”
Very true that quote is, which is exactly why I’m on the chase to sculpt my body into
something fantastic this year. I’m quite excited fitness. I’ve been working out on an average of 6-days a week. I could probably stand to cut back, but honestly, it’s not strenuous workouts. I hone an elliptical machine for no less than 65-minutes straight each morning. If the latter of the day permits me time, I squeeze in an even lower impact 20 (+) additional minutes– (moderate walking speed). The elliptical machine works my arms and legs simultaneously and the caloric burn is unreal. So I wasn’t put off when I started to get a little lower back aggravation. Working out 6-days a week is nothing to scoff at.
The lower back pain wasn’t persistent or too, too bad, but it was often enough for me to start researching stretches and things I could possibly do to alleviate it. Because the elliptical machine works both the upper body and lower, I’m also experiencing muscle tightness in my shoulders and between my blades. It doesn’t help that I naturally hold tension in my shoulders. There is no room for additional taut in my trapezius muscles.
It is wise to know thy body, Yoda is right. In search of non-medicated muscle relief (so that I can get back to my fun and awesome workouts), I came across many suggestions of muscle stretching and lengthening via Yoga. I’m all in!
If wisdom is on the table – I’m trying to eat it.
Once knowledge is conquered, I’m down to seed it.
I’m glad you dropped by and decided to read it.
Yoda and Yoga are categorized wisdom. I need it.
Yoda and Yoga are my go-to’s when I’m looking to dimensionally elongate,
Happy Tuesday to thee – I’m scheduled to write on Hump Day – but I just couldn’t wait. 😀
