Yesterday I tried the so-called “Antigravity” yoga, with hammock. Based on the description it sounded very good: accessible to beginners like me, not a lot of muscle work, a lot of stretching, and it was described as good against back pain, and for people who have an office job and sit a lot.
Therefore I thought ok lets try it! Indeed, anyone can manage to do the exercises, there was a lot of stretching, but yet, I finished the course with mixed feelings… I felt that this technique was indeed really great for relaxing and releasing tensions in back, lower back, shoulders and hips, but on the other hand, I just couldn’t really cope with the constant swinging and the famous “forditott testhelyzet” and ended up totally sea-sick…
I wasn’t able to get back on my bicycle after the course, and had to walk home pushing it. Then I was really grateful that the Antigravity joga studio lays about 300m from my home 🙂
Now comes the question: should I accept that I am no monkeygirl, that having my head down is just not for me, and stop right now? Or shall give it 1 or 2 other tries, see if I can get used to it? Well, I think I need to be brave, and try it again, at least twice. Then if I’m still sick, I need to be brave again, and accept that I was born to do something else 😉
Reports to come soon, puszi mindenkinek 🙂
