It was the late afternoon yesterday when I practiced, sun salutations, middle part of second series and closing sequence (no standing asanas). I did no move more than necessary. No repetitions, no explorations, no preparation asanas.
Since concentration is a focus since some time I got better here. What gets attention grows. Concentration means for me also not to take breaks.
My new old trick helped me also yesterday. It was not a one day fly, it works. I've the book by Matthey Sweeney on my sofa. I calculated how many percentage every row of a series is. It's between 10 and 15. It needn't to be exact. 10 % is each row, I think and 10% are doable.
I give myself time. Slowly I go deeper in the asana. I want to get used slowly to the stretching discomfort. Finally a pose shall be a joy. It shall be cosy to do it. First one has to reach the form as it is supposed to be. There is always a bit more possible, surely. When reached a possible stretch, I focus on breathing and enjoy.
I feel reluctance to do the 5 asanas of third. Not that I don't like to do them mentally, but they are difficult. It's different if one learns a pose or if one practices it.
Perhaps I add these 5 poses today after primary.
Time to move on. It's a travel day today. To the north it goes. There is G's birthday party. 88 is a birthday to celebrate.
