I'm on a yoga journey, which is wonderful and peaceful and enlightening, and also very hard. I have this terrible nagging pain in my shoulder. To lift my arms up like this took some deep breaths and very slow movements. Stil, I got it up there. My shoulder pain affects every facet of my day. Sometimes the frustration has been overwhelming. I just can't move the way I want.
I've had to move differently. But during this yoga practice, something shifted for me. I noticed that because I couldn't just sweep my arms up quickly over my head, I was having to really pull from my core, ground in my legs, and pull up from within.
