"Practice slowly", M told us today in the Mysore class after our common chanting. I added for myself: "And take it easy". It was one of the practices where I was already happy only because I went through all these asanas. Already after having greeted the sun (slowly of course), I felt how a few drops of water were running down my body. "I am sweating," I thought.
Even on such a lame practice day I had highlights: pincha mayurasana was good i.e.
I knew that I would practice till the end, even though it was hard today. When in a group I don't stop in the middle of a practice (group pressure.....hahahaha).
To open the shoulders and the chest is my challenge. Some additional exercises are planned. It is important for urdhva dhanurasana and kapotasana. I have the feeling as if I need 4 more years till I'll be able to do kapotasana. However, to bend backwards feels good.
I do not carry around books in my handbag anymore, so that my shoulder can relax. I don't read anymore during commuting time as it is a bit complicated with my glasses that I need for reading. Why carrying books around then. I can observe my breath when I am bored.....hahahahaha.
Yeah, I'll take a nap now.
