Aches and Pains

I assisted an Intro to Yoga class on Wednesday evening, and this morning, I was kind of creaky. Interesting. I would not think that assisting would be all that taxing - I mean, I'm on the mat for a strong practice nearly very day. How could assisting cause my body to complain?

Perhaps it's just a lot of different work - kneeling, crouching, bending. Perhaps it just seems like less work (because it is outwardly focused, because there is excitement and passion there).

An interesting teaching lesson, for sure. To take care of myself. To be conscious of my body while teaching and assisting. To understand the physical price I will pay to teach.
