I practiced, it was my last practice this year. Primary was on the schedule. I simply wanted to do it and the first surya namaskara A was difficult, stiff. But soon the body became softer and softer. Then I practiced without taking breaks. Flow was experienced.
I feel so good now. I could reach the wrists in marichyasana c and d. I cook hook my fingers when I did supta kurmasana. As an additional exercise I took my leg behind the head and today it was again possible (but not comfortable). Three times I lifted myself up into urdhva dhanurasana. These were the highlights.
What makes the body stiff, I wondered:
- In my case less weight is good.
- If I sleep too long the body becomes stiff, too. I want to have at least seven hours of sleep. But to sleep 9 or 10 hours is too much and the body becomes stiff.
- To be overstretched is not good, but this rarely happens to me nowadays. A danger is when I am in workshops. Then I usually do a bit too much.
- Cold weather or cold rooms influence the flexibility of the body.
For the next year: 7 hours of sleep shall be enough for me.
At 6 we (E, E's mother and me) go out to the Greek restaurant. I love it.
Till then I will live the sofa life: reading, writing, yes that's it.
