  1. Hi, yes I understood perfectly, your English is very good, wishing you every success on your own journey, lovely to have corresponded on this subject ??
  2. Hi, yes that makes so much sense to me, it's been a few weeks since I posted this and I've really got into a daily routine of practicing yoga and it just dawned on me the other day that I'm hardly doing it anymore. Everything you said resonated with me, thanks for replying, it's put my mind at ease....Namaste

Everything you said resonated with me, thanks for replying, it's put my mind at ease....Namaste I don't go beyond my ability and I'm quite physically fit so I don't feel like I it's too strenuous, but I will look into the chakras, I've just downloaded a free book from Amazon just to get me started. I think since we first spoke it has eased off a bit, I remember having the same feelings a few times over the years but I never knew what caused it or why it went away on its own, but now I've started my yoga journey more seriously I feel like I'm acquiring a deeper understanding of myself and although I can't quite workout why this is happening just yet it's still an interesting journey (although a slightly annoying one at times). Kind regards
  4. Hi, is it just me or does anyone else end up all over there yoga mat? I don't mean slipping, I mean I always seem to end up diagonal in warrior 2 or my head or my feet are always way off the end when it comes to laying down, other people seem to stay exactly central to their mat, not sure I'm looking for solutions, it's just an observation, just wondered surely it can't just be me! Lol

  6. Thank you so much for your input, it all strikes a cord with me. Ok sorry to ask you more questions, are there definite poses to avoid while my perineum calms down because I said pelvic floor but actually when I really think about it is is more perineum than pelvic floor, and yes it's also my jaw and mouth right near my throat! Any other hints and tips would be soooo gratefully received. kind regard and happy holidays ??
  7. I class myself as a novice so I don't really understand bandhas, I am on the yogaglo website so all my practices are home based. Yes I always choose what I feel my baddy needs, if I feel energetic, or if I feel contemplative etc. I helps me decide which class I follow on the day. Thanks
  8. Hi, I'm trying everything, vinyasa, ashtanga primary series, Hatha, restorative, I've started to meditate everyday, all aimed at beginner as I am aware that I need to build up gradually. thanks
  9. Hi I hope this is ok to ask, I've dabbled with yoga on and off for years but the last 6 weeks I've taken it more seriously and practised for 1 hour everyday, nothing to difficult, I've started with basics and I'm gradually increasing the intensity. Feel great in every way except I have this feeling in my pelvic floor, I feel like I need to keep clenching my pelvic floor every few seconds, if I'm involved in a physical activity or I'm doing something that's fully immersive I don't think about it but if I'm relaxing it's very intense and quite frankly a little unnerving, it's so bad that if I'm sat watching TV I have found that if I cup myself with my hand it calms it down, but obviously this is not normal and I don't want to sit with my hand down there all night! It's not painful, it's just annoying. Other things I have noticed is I want to clenching my jaw or grind my teeth at the same time. I'm wondering if this is a physiological response to staring yoga again or an emotional response, have I awaken something physically or psychologically? either way has anyone else experienced this or has any advice for me. kind thought caitlin
