Yoga Hangover.


I overdid the Eka Pada Rajakapotasana last night.  It’s safe to say I hit the backbends a little too hard.  After my intense practice I felt nauseous.  This has never happened to me before.  I’ve heard of people getting dizzy or nauseous  immediately after doing Ustrasana (camel pose) but I had to lay down several hours after I left my mat because I felt so sick. Not to mention my back hurt this morning when I woke up.  The body will let you know, in all sorts of ways, when you need to back off and take it easy.  Today I will hydrate and have a hair of the downdog, but I’ll take it easy with a Yin practice.

    That’s happened to me twice before! A couple years ago I took a 2 hour “master class” from a very well known yogi in NYC which involved him pushing my body (physically) further than its limits. The next day I felt like I had the flu and I was vomiting and out of commission for 2 days…then just two weeks ago, I did a GENTLE evening practice and immediately after-upset tummy. That one just stuck with me for about 12 or so hours but still…yoga can release those toxins with a major vengeance under the right circumstances! I hope you feel better beautiful 🙂
