The lessons of fatigue

I am back from our Spanish vacation, even though American Airlines did everything possible to keep me in Madrid, including unilaterally suspending our return flight reservations without notifying us. I did not get many chances to practice yoga, though I did fit in mini-sessions of mindfulness. I did learn a lot about my body from the harried pace of trans-Atlantic flights, long drives and sight seeing. After spending four hours walking through the corridors of El Prado Museum taking in the masters of Velasquez, El Greco and Goya, I could really feel the fatigue in the small of my back and my lower abdomen. But I discovered that by leveling my hips I could feel immediate relief. I focused on keeping my spine balanced on top of my hips. Another confirmation that I have hyperlordosis from years slumped over a keyboard.
