No, no, I didn’t leave my gentleman friend’s arms to rush into those of someone with a Hindu god’s name!
To make things clear:
I practice the Dance of Shiva, which is also called Shiva Nata and is, in the words of the #2 world Shiva Nata expert, “a unique (and visually stunning), flowing yoga-based movement form that actually restructures neural connections in your brain”. The important thing to know for today’s little story is that it involves specific movements of the arms and the legs.
For over a month now, I was unable to do the arm movements because of a problem with my ribcage (more on that in another post), so I was restricted to doing the leg movements only. The healing process slowly went on, and this morning I decided to try and see if I’d be able to do the arm movements again without (too much) pain.
Result? Yay! It was mostly ok!
Which is why I can say that I’m back into Shiva Nata’s arms! ;)
I guess I’ll talk about Shiva Nata quite a bit here, because it’s really great for me in a lot of ways, and it’s having a positive impact on my life. Actually, you can ask my gentleman friend, I do talk a lot about it at home too! Fortunately, I got him started on it too, so I can bring it up at any given opportunity without him thinking that I’m (too much of) a crazy wacky freak!
Ok, I’m attempting to write a shorter post today, so I won’t go on and on about it, even though I very well could (I just can’t stop!). I know Shiva Nata isn’t very well known, though, so if your curiosity has been piqued and there’s something you’d like to know about it or my experience with it, don’t hesitate to ask. Bonus answers: yes, I love, love, love it, and yes, getting the starter kit is totally worth it!
Anyways, being able to practice Dance of Shiva with the arms again makes me very very happy, and I just had to share!
