OMG, the tongue. The tongue is supposed to be at the upper front teeth. I had rolled my tongue and pressed it against the lower front teeth. Of course this influences the breathing. There is much more room in the throat when the tongue is slightly touching the upper front teeth. OMG.
Mysore class this evening: 8 aspirants showed up today. I love the energy of my fellow Ashtangis. This gives me motivation and strength. Urdhva dhanurasana improves, at least I have the feeling that this is the case. I had a great practice. The breath, the right counting, that's what will be my focus tomorrow and of course the back bending.
I relax now. Enough for today.
