As you know, I'm trying to incorporate yoga into my workout routine. However, Physical Therapy wouldn't allow anything but their PT exercises, so I haven't been able to do any yoga lately, and I have to say
that I have missed it.
But, I think my Physical Therapy (at least for now) is coming to an end. In fact, I cancelled last week's appointment, and I cancelled this upcoming week. Mainly because trying to correct the misalignment has cause other issues such as pinched nerves and lower back pain that I was not experiencing in the past. I'm not saying that I am 'finished' with physical therapy, I'm just taking a couple of weeks off to let my body regroup from all of the manual manipulations. And I'm doing a little trial and error on my own to see what aggravates things, and what I can tolerate.
So far I've been able to complete a 3 mile run on the treadmill, and a 2 mile run outside with minimal pain. I'm pleased with that. It was a beautiful run in the snow yesterday.
And today, I did a little stretching using the Clever Yoga strap.
And I have to say that it felt great. I have definitely lost a lot of my flexibility, and I think the Clever Yoga Strap is going to be great to help me with improving my flexibility and my balance. And don't think the strap is short by any means. I have it doubled in the first photo of me stretching. :)
I love how I can loop it over my foot (or feet), and I don't have to worry about it slipping off. And with the Clever Yoga Strap, I'm able to hold poses longer with the strap than without.
Overall, I love it. I think it's well made, seems very durable, and I can see me using it for years. I am so glad to have it among my workout gear.
