How are you? Can you believe it is October already? What happened to September? It absolutely flew by…I hope you are all settled back in and feeling good…
It already seems such a long time ago now but we had a wonderful late summer holiday in Umbria in Italy - Myself, my husband and daughter. We cycled 100km over 3 days through stunning countryside. I was blown away by Assisi and the medieval towns passed through and was in awe of the magic of nature and the incredible history in all it’s splendour. Incredible.
I was able to be really present, something which is easier said than done and could appreciate the everyday miracles are all around us. Im doing it now, back in Barcelona tapping on these keys and watching the falling words into my brain appear on the page.. in the now…Oooo that was nice.
I was also in awe of my my daughter, who is only 8 years old and cycled the whole way taking the challenge in her stride. I was so proud of her. It was a really beautiful and bonding time for us all and I am filled with gratitude..
… but boy I could feel that cycle ride in my back.. Yikkes!
A Pilates and yoga teacher with a bad back? Oh yes, people… It was super stiff I can tell you!
Most of us suffer from lower back pain at sometime in our lives and for some of us feel a constant niggle or tightness in this area. Lifestyle is often to blame for this kind of pain, constant sitting in chairs and on sofas, lack of exercise, bad mattresses.. Our backs take the brunt.
We also hold fear, insecurity, anxiety about who we are, lack of trust all down here in this energy centre which can play havoc on our back and on our eliminiation systems that give us toilet trouble and age our skin.
Having a healthy lower back can make life much more enjoyable. We can get on and do our things with grace and ease…Imagine being pain free with a spring in your step and being able to move without all that stiffness? Yes please!
Here we have an exercise to relieve lower back pain and stiffness.
Follow the link below which will take you to my facebook page video that shows you a really simple movement that will help you relieve pain in your lower spine and give you more flexibility. It also gets the spinal fluid going that helps the digestive system and helps us detox.. (Of course, if you are in severe pain, have an injury or a special condition please consult a doctor)
The energy that is balanced here helps us stay youthful
Thank loads and and I hope that helps…
