Ok i hope i can explain this. Been doing yoga for a yr,and i practice a lot,every day for one hr. It seems like the more i do the more my body needs. I feel great for a few hrs after my practice but then my body craves more. I get stiff when i wake up,that never happened before i started yoga. It's like my mind and body is saying go practice. Im not complaing just wondering

Hey! I Thought of this last night. I recall a time when every day of my life was spent watching tv on my couch and yet I only ever seemed to notice a little stiff pain in the neck. Now that I practice every day or every other day I notice EVERYTHING. I notice everywhere that my body is tight, every joint that doesn't feel well. I can identify a muscle that needs stretching in the middle of my arm and figure out how to stretch only that muscle in the exact perfect way so that I find relief.

Its the heightened awareness that comes with the practice. Maybe you needed it before and never noticed because it wasn't a priority at any time to pay close attention to it when there wasn't pain.

It bugs me to have these aches and pains but overall I feel very grateful for it.

I have been doing yoga for only a short time but I have been doing it pretty faithfully but today I over slept and had not time. I went to work and I did not feel right all day and now my neck and shoulders are getting stiff.

Maybe unrealted but then maybe it is realted, just wondering?
