More than any workshop, losing 2 kilos could improve my practice much more. It would be so much easier to lift up my body when trying to float backwards. Back bending, forward bending, especially the twists would become a piece of cake if I were a bit lighter.
All the tricks and tips how to perform asanas are available on the net for free. To have a life show is nice, but not necessary.
It would make more sense to focus on consequent healthy eating habits than to run to workshops where everybody is going, bloody beginners and advanced beginners. The last workshop that I attended was a social event and I learned that Ashtanga yoga is fun. That was it. To hold my poses a bit longer than usual would have done more for my practice. I don't need workshops to be motivated. I am motivated.
If one wants to learn with a special teacher it's good to spend a month minimum with him/her.
A workshop is to get to know a person, not more.
I've three teachers on my list. Hahaha, two are yoginis from too different continents, the other one is an Indian yogi. If possible I'd like to spend more time with them than 2 days.
Because I spent 2 months in Gokulam, it was a success. I returned to Germany and my practice was different. Only to mention the main point. After my stay in India I was able to do the vinyasas on both sides also when I practiced alone. That's indeed something.
The more I think about workshops the more I think it's good to focus on my home practice. Our teacher M is back very soon (on Wednesday to be precise). I can learn so much from him. Home practices, Mysore classes with an experienced teacher and once a week a led class is a perfect triangle. Practicing with a CD can substitute a led class.
Yeah, I realize it, I'd love to do everything re yoga also every workshop, but I have to be picky. I'm not such an advanced yogini that I can be at two places at the same time. My life requires focus. It's still my topic to be too distracted too quickly.
I do enough yoga. 6 times a week for more than 2 hours. I don't know so many people with such an intensive yoga practice. My entire life had to adopt to my yoga schedule. I'm not unhappy about it. Again, this shall be enough.
Ha, it's time to shoo away my bf from my yoga place. Ohhhhhhhh. It's time to focus.
