Not yet back to a stable rhythm
Oh my, it has been after midnight when I went to bed. They broadcast the US-series "Homeland" here. I had to watch. I didn't regret it. The series has 11 more parts.
This morning I switched off the alarm clock. I kept sleeping. Perhaps I needed it. Obviously. It was too late to hurry to the Mysore class when I finally opened my eyes.
I ate my breakfast while leaning against my balcony door and observed the tiny snow flakes falling down. It's cold outside, I thought. I know what it means that I didn't get up. I've to practice alone without the energy of a group of yogis and yoginis. Since the winter break of our teacher M is over, I'm not yet back to a stable routine. Who cares?
I'm sipping my second cup of coffee. It warms me and wakes me up.
I already checked my calender: 3 appointments this week. The items on my to-do list got less, I'm down to 14 activities. I shall see how far I come today. If I can cross out one duty I'm happy. I love minimalistic days.
The plan for my practice:
1. I'll limit the time. 2 hours is enough.
2. I'll practice second series.
3. Focus is back bending with some extra asanas that support it.
4. I'll do the closing sequence with the CD by Sharath. I'm too fast here when I practice alone. Quickly I want to bring it behind me when I'm so far. Yet the closing sequence is for cooling down.
