Oh, so cold....
One must try it. Ideas must come to realization, then one can adjust them, modify them or discard them. But one must have tested them. I love this tree on the picture. The location is good for taking pictures. Exactly like this tree on the picture I imagine the tree where buddha sat when he became enlightened. Me too, I got insights. It's too cold for yoga sessions outside already. At least pashasana is not possible when it's cold and when I have to put on a thick pullover and a jacket. I tried it. The result was more than lousy.
Next summer will come.
But what to do during winter time? I must find rooms that I can rent from time to time. Of course one can shoot when it's cold. Yet it's difficult to perform advanced yoga poses outside without warming up. Making the best out of every given life situation is one of my life mottos. Solutions will be found. Perhaps I should make a list of easy asanas.....that can be performed any time without warming up.
This morning I turned on the heater. It was fresh inside, too.
I slept so long this morning, till 11am. Impossible. Hahaha......Whenever I get up I start with my morning routine as always: checking mails, sipping Matcha, having breakfast, writing my journal, stepping on the mat.......
To practice 2 hours is a good idea. Not all asanas were done, but I worked on back bending and I spiced second series up with third series asanas. After 2 hours I have enough. I mentally check if I had a balanced practice. Have I done back bending? twists? leg behind head poses? balancing poses? If I can answer with 'yes' to these questions I think I've done enough. Patience is necessary.
New is that I add pranayama and 10 min meditation at the end. It's not that I think I have to do it, I want to do it.
Will I get up tomorrow on time? Yep I want to go to a Mysore class at 8am. Wow. Might it happen!
