Being distracted is certainly a topic in my life. I managed it to check my emails, I put the wet clothes on the festoon drier, I adjusted a hundred times my mat, I walked around and all that happened during my holy yoga practice. If I were still at school, they certainly would give me pills to calm me down.
I practiced. Yeppeeeee. Really, I am glad. I don't mind that I was distracted, I returned to my mat and I gave my very best.
Pashasana: I couldn't reach my fingers, even though I tried this pose twice. Usually during the second time I can go deeper into the pose, but not today.
Usthrashana was my last pose of the second series. I did one variation, that I saw in the book by Sweeney. I stretched one arm close to the ear backwards. This shall lengthen the body and is supposed to be a preparation for urdhva dhanurasana. I think this is true. It feels good.
Urdhva dhanurasana: I could lift me up three times and I could even do it with straight arms. To bend backwards from standing position was weak today. Breathing is important I thought, this was my focus.
When inhaling I stretched and lengthened my body, when exhaling I folded deeper into the pose.
My practice was better than the last days, nevertheless hard.
Now I feel good.
I have still time to meditate before meeting C. for lunch.
