Nice to see the regular faces in class this morn. Oh, and a couple of new faces to me – but you can tell they are not new to Backhealer. No sounds of pain or surprise! “You want me to do what?” I used to be surprised at least once every class: “you want me to SIT on the ball?!” or “you want me to put the ball THERE!?” Thinking that what was suggested was impossible to do and it never was.
Did savasana & checked in with my body. Ok, my left hip & low back was very sore. Right near the S.I. joint (Aeo knew the spot & I googled it when I got home!). The breathing helped alleviate some of the tension there and Aeo suggested working with the red ball right next to the S.I. joint. Really, really good hot spots. Worked outwards from there to the meaty part of the glutes and found VERY HOT spots. Worked them all out on both sides.
Then did the black ball from my mid-back down to where I started with the red ball. Lots of heat generated in that whole area.
The topic of stress came up. Changing your thought patterns by changing your body. How different people hold tension in different parts of the body. The mid-section/gut is a popular area. Another reason why doing ball work in psoasland is so beneficial and why that is the first place you start. It was reiterated how important it is to keep working on this area even when it has released and other areas seem to need attention. Doing touch-ups to keep it clear. To keep this key muscle group flexible and the tension OUT.
Closed with savasana and yoga. Everybody left smiling!
