Walked without splints for a while today, to get the leg muscles feel movement. I cannot imagine being still is healthy here ... since when I started walking again, the leg felt so cottony, as if it had no memory of any movement at all. So, yes, I walked and all that. But I realise how acutely involved the knee is in simple motions. For instance, I dropped a fresh packet of cubed sugar and when I tried to hold it, the knees bend slightly.. Hey, I almost toppled over with the keen pain!! So, the knee is still far off form... but u know I believe in yoga. I believe some movements will heal the knee. And some movements must be restricted (sun salute for now, and vajrasana for instance:( But pranayama has been always the core of yoga healing module so that is there. And back to meditation with a vengeance (this new house makes me so sleepy, esp when meditating).
So, yes, I believe yoga heals. I am moving about. The knee feels unstable still. But on that foot, below that knee, went and did a tattoo... Healing can be fun, instead of some somber, depressing place...
Let your yoga take u also there:)
