Preparation for the filming
I was asked and I said 'yes'.
Airyoga offers online video classes. They also want to offer a video class - Ashtanga yoga, half primary. So I was asked if I'd like to be part of the show. What I couldn't forsee was that we would be so few yoginis. We'll be 3 people only to be precise. Our teacher, a yogi and a yogini (myself). Our teacher will lead us through the session. So we'll be 2 practitioners. Oh my.
Yesterday I realized to what I've said 'yes'. As we're only 2 yoginis who practice we'll get a lot of attention. That is I've to be really focused.
Make-up, yoga clothes by Mandala will make us look like perfect yoginis of the 21st century. :)
How to prepare?
1. I looked up the dristis (gazing point for each position). This is something I really miss when I see the practice of my colleagues. Some even close the eyes. So I want to show the correct dristis.
2. I won't eat anything anymore tonight. Weight is a key factor for a flexible practice.
3. Mentally I will think: It's like every day, a daily practice. Enjoy and relax.
