I bought an online DVD by Maria Villella. It's a perfect DVD as she doesn't talk too much, she simply leads through the series. Less is more. I bought this DVD as I wanted to study the vinyasas. It can also serve as a led class. I want to test it today at least till the end of the standing poses. Then I prefer to do full vinyasa.
This could really be an idea for one of the Ashtanga gurus: producing a primary CD with full vinyasas (no explanations, simply counting!!!!).
When I practice at home it's different than when I practice in Mysore classes. In classes I stick to the series and practice it comme il faut.
At home my practice transforms to a learning adventure:
I add asanas (leg behind the head before supta kurmasana, split poses, handstands).
I repeat asanas like upavishta konasana.
I'm looking forward to my practice today.
I feel calmer today. My life will change again dramatically. I got a job offer as an accountant. It fell into my lap so to say. So many of my criteria are fulfilled I had to say "yes": It's downtown and a branch that I like. I'll work 30 hours "only" and I can decide when this will be. This will allow me to go to the Mysore classes as usual.
I don't know if my "decision" is a good one. Who ever knows this. It's also not so much a decision than going with the flow, showing no resistance. It's more saying yes to what is offered on a silver plate.
This job will also allow me to work on my book project. My life will surely intensify again.
A girl needs cash. I've no choice. Life happens.
My efforts will focus on making my life simpler and simpler. Less is more. This is true almost always.
I'm still working on being better organised.
My first working day will be the Monday, after the Mysore class......hahahaha. What shall I dress????
It was an exciting day yesterday for sure. I will need energy and I have it.
