Deaf Man Pose is about looking within to beat the claustrophobia

Posted Jan 25 2013 12:20am
  Jupiter had to have a space maintainer take out yesterday so we took a road trip to Iowa City.  He goes to the Pediatric Dental Clinic at the college as they have a great program for kids with special needs.  I felt great all day and the spawn are excellent travelers.  As soon as we got home, I felt like total dookie.  I did some late night yoga and it made me feel better but it was a struggle to get started but I felt so much better after just doing a few Sun Salutations and the various challenge poses.  As always though, I have yet to regret yoga.

  I felt the same craptacular sluggishness this morning.  I even had to take a nap.  Booo!  The nap was great but the struggle is the depression that comes with not feeling well.  As the day wore on I started feeling much better.  I am finding that taking a magnesium supplement, I take Natural Calm, does wonders for this foggy brained feeling I get.  It seems to help with flushing out toxins.

  Today's pose was the Deaf Mans Pose.  Not my favorite.  It makes me feel quite claustrophobic.   This weeks intention is Gaze and Focus.  I didn't see how this fell into the Gaze and Focus category.  So I warmed up and did the pose and then after posting it to instagram, I read that others have the same claustrophobic feelings.  It was suggested that imagining wide open spaces helps.  Now I want to try again to see if I can focus and find a sweet spot.  The Gaze and Focus seems to be about looking inward instead of outside of myself.  That is something I indeed need to practice.   The blame game is my nemesis.  The upside is I know where the work lies.
