These are all poses that engage the quad muscles.
And I just thought my quads were burning because I had not never really exercised, and my thighs were easily and quickly fatigued.
Anger. In my quads. This was news to me.
Just do the poses and release the energy.
Once upon a time, someone told me that anger serves as a secondary emotion.
It covers other emotions like hurt, confusion or sadness.
And, if I were being honest with myself, I would have to admit that I do not always recognize when I am angry.
So maybe my instructor was onto something and giving me instruction on something more than yoga.
Through the poses, I gain strength and release energy at the same time.
Sometimes, I am surprised at the after effects. I discovered that yoga is not just a physical practice but an emotional one, as well.
This was news to me, too.
