No discussion - I practice
No discussion: I practice.
I stop these inner discussion of the ambitious me and the lazy fearful me at an early point. Too often the lazy me wins. It's OK to practice only relaxing asanas, but not to practice at all is not an alternative.
Today is Sunday, second Ashtanga series was on the schedule. Back bending was the focus.
Forward split is always part of my practice, every day. It helps me to stretch the hip flexor of the leg that stretches backwards.
The first step is being able to be on the floor with both legs. Then one can think of back bending in that position in addition. To make it easier it could be useful to bend the leg that is in front of the body.
Whenever a pose felt weak, I repeated it. Often the pose is much more relaxing when it has reached a perfect form. Feeling good in a pose is my goal. I want to breathe deeply also in difficult asanas.
Highlight of today: I could bind pashasana again. I celebrate this.
When under the shower after my practice I tell my brain: Time to give trouble to my back is over. This shows effect.
It's time for breakfast now.
These 100 minutes were so worth doing it.
