No movement is off-limits.
Fitness people typically like to tell people what to do 🙋♀️
& they have a big list of what NOT to do too.
Ex: I used to tell people “no kipping pull-ups”… you’re more likely to get hurt.
While that may be true, there is a time & place for kipping pull-ups.
Ex: I used to think walking was lame & a waste of time (I mean, why not just run & get it over with?).
Now, I love my walks & count them as part of my training & also meditation.
Things have changed & these days, I’m more focused on movement. Any kind. Especially the kind that makes you happy & feel alive.
Backbends are that for me. They’re freaking hard, I’ve been working on them for 15ish years. Sometimes I can do them & sometimes I can’t. But when I can, they feel so so good. Part of the reason I love backbends is that in yoga, they teach that backbends are heart-opening… also freaking hard.
But so worth it.
What movement makes you happy? What’s the challenging thing that is always so worth it?
