"The next level of yoga is to develop a home practice. And if you never do that, well, it’s kind of like only seeing your husband out at bars. It’s like he’s hanging out at the same bars he’s been hanging out at for ten years, and his bar friends are getting younger and sloppier and more intolerable." Joslyn Hamilton in elephant journal.
Please note: this quote is out of context. The title of the article is: My yoga breakup. I only liked the metaphor and I think it is good to have a home practice.
One of the huge advantages of yoga is: I only need a mat and some fancy and comfortable clothes, then I can practice where ever I am, whenever I want. It is something for independent people (free birds). The Mysore classes prepare for a home practice.
This would be my recommendation: From the first yoga class on, start also your home practice. It can be enough to do a few sun salutations. But this is the beginning to build something for yourself.
I am ready for a "morning practice". I am not sure if I can go to a led class this evening. I get something repaired here, and one never knows when these craftsmen arrive. Grghhhhh.
I will focus on back bending. It can be that I only practice till kapotasana........to open, to let go, to be fearless are the thoughts that accompany my back bending exercises.
