Life with the rubber bands is generally fine, aside from looking dorky. I’ve gotten the hang of putting them on, and am remembering more often than not to put them on. But, I’m reminded at interesting times.
“Om Nama Shiva”
I regularly practice Anusara Yoga, and classes start with an invocation, where we chant “OM”, three times. And now I can’t open my mouth wide enough to “OM” the way I usually do. Yoga is about transformation and learning to go with the flow, so you could say my modified “OM” is part of my yoga practice now.
Always trying to make the best of this braces adventure.
