At the half way point, I agree with her completely.
What I love, though, is that I don't necessarily feel "more flexible" or "more skilled" then when I started. Actually, some muscles are tighter. Some poses are harder. Some are easier. Par example:
- Sometimes, for some fractions of seconds, my knee is actually locked in standing head to knee.
- My left hip is starting to swivel forward to a proper alignment. I never noticed it until about a week ago, but my left hip has spent some amount of time actually behind where my right hip lives.
- My spine is getting steadily stronger. However, my shoulders are tight enough to really prevent a well formed backbend. Trying to work on that as best I can while still improving range of spine motion.
- I have issues with forward bending. Which is...different. A lot of people can't back bend. I'm like, "WHEE GO." But forward bends are rough. My spine still has a lot of downward stretching to do.
