I woke up early. This was no problem this morning, in Germany it's 5 hours later. I got a coffee from downstairs and soon I stepped on my mat.
It's good to have a time limit. The time limit shall allow having enough time for a relaxed practice, but to have a limit is good. 90 min is a good time for me. It's long enough but not too long. This morning I simply had to go on with my practice without taking breaks if I wanted to have finished second series within this time frame. Concentration is now what is improving. Not that I was very bendy this morning. After a day in the plane, where almost no movement is possible, the body is stiff. This is all not important. I practiced. I did the second series without any props. For pashasana I took the blanket under my heels and for pincha mayurasana I used the wall as a support. But this was it.
The weather is perfect here. It's a summer day, but it is not too hot.
