I practiced primary yesterday in the afternoon. I practiced with care as my right leg is still overstretched. It takes long till it is healed. I must be patient. This afternoon practice prepared my body for the intensive second series, today. Only 2 more weeks and then M is on vacation. Then I will have to practice alone without these perfect adjustments. I hope my back bending won't stagnate......
Yes, today I go to a Mysore class. It is as if I go to work, only much much better.
Yesterday I got a comment on a post from 2006. A reader started reading my blog from the beginning on and read about my challenge to be focused. He (Krishna) gave good advice, I like to forward it:
Ashtanga yoga is all in one:
1. This means we exercise the body with the asanas.
2. We do pranayama - uddjay breathing.
3. We exercise the mind with the dristhis and with focus on the breathing i.e..
This can be very challenging especially in the beginning. It can be helpful to practice these disciplines isolated. I think this is true.
It motivates me to integrate an short evening routine with a few sun salutations (so that sitting in lotus pose becomes easy), 10 min pranayama and 10 min meditation.
