2 hours Ashtanga yoga is enough.
I woke up at 5am. I had missed already sun rise. Soon I got up and at 9am I was on the mat. No discipline issues these days. It's also the weather that helps to be so consequent. When it's warm it's so much easier to bend.
Like yesterday I did a lot of back bending asanas. One day these asanas must improve only because I put so much time into learning them. It's not possible to realize progress on a daily basis.
After the leg behind head poses concentration faded. How do I realize this? I want to leave the mat, I dawdle, thinking starts becoming intrusive........I still added pincha mayurasana and mayurasana. Oh my, I'm so fearful. I don't know how to get away from the wall when I do pincha mayurasana. I must learn to fall, but this scares me so much.
Not all asanas were done, but it was enough practice. I finished it with the finishing sequence. At the end I lied on the floor to rest for 10 min. I showered. Now I want to meditate for 10 min and again almost 3 hours are dedicated to my yoga practice. I love it. It's pure luxury. What a time-consuming practice I have, oh my.
I eat light these days. On the picture is my salad of yesterday: 3 carrots, 1 apple, parsley and a dressing made of oil, citron, a bit of salt and a bit of Algave syrup.
