YOGAballGATE! - New knickers please!

Aug 12, 2016 8:31 AM

Omg! Laughter therapy!!! πŸ˜‚

U know how some bright spark, keeps sugguesting
"... do some YOGA! Thats what you need!"
Ok so i do my own kinda pilates/yoga/stretches... and they do help... but im no expert...quite contraire!

Well ive always wanted a big round ball of joy... to balance on... stretch on... sit on! So finally this week i bought me a yoga ball... a red one off ebay that came with a foot pump! Yay i hear u chant! Lmfao!

So yesterday it arrived! I was so extatic! I still am! I got it out the box and fitted the footpump...and started to give it my all! After 10 mins of using my foot... i switched to my hands... cos damn this thing took the puff clean outta me... and i werent even blowing!!!

So ball inflated! (I had a sleep for half hour... woke up with dribble on my chin and the ball in my arms lmao!) I set it down on the wooden floor... and very carefully lowered ones enormous ass... into position and lowered down onto said ball!!!

2 bounces and i rolled backwards off the friggin ball... hit my head on the cabinate... landing squarely on the dog whom broke my fall! Omg! Legs akimbo! Laughed so damn hard i wet my knickers almost instantly!

Moral of the story - not all advice is good, hahaha... and people with balance issues should hold onto something when riding the ball... and being a "tena" lady at 44..... PRICELESS!

It really was #yogaBALLgate! But boy, did i laugh!

(No yoga balls were hurt in the making of this post)
Picture recreated for ur pleasure! PMSL! πŸ˜‰

I don't get on here very often, but whenever I read your posts you really make me laugh. And I love the pictures they're totally awesome. I just wanted to let you all know that I've always advocated for yoga because for two years it really has helped me. But I haven't been in about three and a half months because my pain really really got so bad and I was depressed and I couldn't get myself to go. Long story short I had an injection in my back which helped for about two and a half weeks and I felt so good. I went to my first yoga class in three and a half months on Monday. It's a YIN class which means that it's more stretching and you hold the stretching poses for three to five minutes while sitting or laying on mat...no outrageous standing poses!! Usually it helps me so much but the next day my pain got so bad that I was crying. I had pain on top of my shoulders that was so excruciating I didn't know what to do with myself. So yes I do recommend yoto try but it's not for everyone but take it slow. I thought it was taking it slow but I also remember feeling I can get back into this it's no big deal. Good luck to you all and thanks for the laughs, lulabel!

YAY!!! So happy that the injection helped enough to get you back to yoga that you love much. I wish you continued success with the yoga and that your pain levels go down. {{{Hugs}}}πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»πŸ˜Š
