Ouchie moo mouchie – there’s an awful stitch in my back. I feel it when I’m working on my bind in Marichyasana D. I can twist to the left without any issues, but when I try to bring my right arm around my left knee and twist further, a painful spike of pain soaked pain shoots painfully through my right middle trapezius near my shoulder blade and spine. It’s a nice little pain in the back. Yesterday I didn’t try the bind due to the pain, but today I worked through it with Amy’s help.
Not sure what happened. Maybe it was all the driving I did in Puerto Rico, or perhaps I strained the muscle during Urdhva Mukha Svanasana. I’m sure it will work itself out, but it’s interesting that I’m noticing every little change in my body. My practice is making me hyper aware of all of the little pains, strains and ouchie moo mouchies as they occur from day to day.
