Blog titles came up during my practice (Mysore class), but this was it. Otherwise I was focused on my breath. Now I cannot remember one single blog title anymore.
I practiced slowly, ha this is a trick when I do not feel so fit and after the pasta and the two glasses of wine (I shared it with E, admitted) yesterday evening, I feared to have a sloppy and exhausting practice. This was not the case. My practice was very intensive today. Yes, great. Even M praised my back bending. But after urdhva dhanurasana I was no more able to hold my body with my arms in chaturanga dandasana, I had to put my body on the floor. I gave everything and this is always a good feeling when I have access to my energy resources and when I am even able to use it for something so beautiful like a first Ashtanga series.
Any insights that I got from today's practice are forgotten.
One thankful thought came up that I remember now: Asthanga yoga is 99% practice and 1 % philosophy. Am I glad that I do not have to listen to any life philosophy or listen to how I have to live my life. This is another reason why I prefer Ashtanga yoga to other yoga styles. I step on my mat and I breathe and move. The practice tells me so much, it is enough. Yes 1% theory, this is wonderful.....:), it's enough.
