For the record, I hate working dayshifts. And just to add to the joy of it all, I switched shifts with someone so I’m working 4 of them in a row. Egads, 4 days that start at 4:15 am …well theoretically start at 4:15. Today I was awake at 3 because…who knows?

I’m feeling a lot of tension in my neck and shoulder area this morning. It’s the sitting in a chair for 12 hours at a time that does it. The cycling doesn’t help as I have a tendency to “turtle” on the bike, pushing my shoulders towards my ears. Why? I have no earthly idea. This morning’s practice is going to be attending a little to that area of the body. I’m still working with the Samasthiti session I constructed a few days ago. There’s still something in need of tweaking there… I suspect the problem is with the end of it.

In any event, I’m off to the mat. There’s something in me right now that’s in desperate need of a few held breaths of Parivrtta trikonosana revolved triangle to bring my back and shoulders to normal.

Thanks for reading and Namaste,



About Kate MacKay

I'm a certified Viniyoga teacher, in Fredericton, NB. I was a 9-1-1 operator and emergency services dispatcher for 22 years. Surprisingly, the two worked well together, or as I liked to put it, from the sublime to the ridiculous -- all in a day's work. I'm currently off work as a result of a stress-induced cardiac condition that's thrown a few crimps in my lifestyle. I'm not actively teaching yoga in the classroom right now and probably won't for several more months. That said, this blog is one of the forms of practice I can do and I thank you for joining me in this exploration of all things yoga.
