Today I had the rare opportunity to take an afternoon yoga class. When I arrived, there was a substitute teacher -one of my favorite instructors, who typically teaches in the morning while I’m busy at work!
It seems like lately, no matter WHO the instructor is, the emphasis has been on pigeon. I have a love hate relationship with pigeon pose. It is a hip stretch.
Did you know we store a lot of emotions in our hips? It can be an emotional experience to be in pigeon. For me, it is an intense sensation that hurts so good. It involves breathing into those spaces that are crying out for relief.
I ate pizza.
When I came out of yoga class, I noticed still the pizza in car, but had no desire to eat.
I was off to go tutor & after tutoring I forgot about the pizza, but realized I was hungry.
At first I said to myself, “Why am I hungry? I just ate pizza! (I said this without judgment, more out of curiosity.) Then I realized that was about 3 hours ago, so my body’s signals were in fact probably dead on!
So I ate the rest of the pizza and found satisfaction for the second time that day.
trust your body. always.
