Almost fell asleep in Pindasana. Otherwise I’m feeling much more like a real human being than I did yesterday.
Tuesday morning yoga
Best. Breathing hasn’t been this effortless since March, and there was no unnecessary thinking involved. (Ok, a little at that point where I discovered that the mystery material of my top couldn’t handle moisture and lost its elasticity and that didn’t work at all with inversions, but anyway.)
I got maybe two hours of sleep last night because of two drinking parties in the yard, but waking up is still easy when the sun is already up at half past four. Plus I made a pile of important things last night, so there was no forgetting keys or pants this time. To be honest, I don’t remember much about the practice. Just that it didn’t feel like morning practice at all. I think it’s because the warmth; I’m practically in liquid state at the moment, and can do relaxed forward folds with no trouble.
My regular shala is still being renovated, so I had to travel to the other one further away. It’s twice as big, there are more rules and instructions taped on the doors and more yogis. I have to say I prefer the regular one with all its small groups, maze-like dressing room and one rule of opening and closing the doors silently.Edit: write right after getting home, spend the rest of the day editing out typos.
I’m trying to get used to the idea of getting up at 4:30 tomorrow. Not at all sure I could survive an afternoon practice in this weather.
And now that I said it on internet it will be much harder to back out. Exellent.
I had great plans for completely redoing the yoga wardrobe (because it’s in a critical state, and when I say critical, I mean critical) but this is all I got done in two weeks. That damn swimsuit project sucked all my sewing energy, and even though it’s in tolerable shape by now I’m kind of not friends with sewing at the moment. Exept for sewing leggings, because they are easy, fast and very difficult to screw up.
Today I’ve been mainly drinking water and comparing death valley experiences with people who have tried to run or bike during the past couple of days. The hottest week in 50 years, says the newspaper.
I’ll try to develop a self-discipline by tomorrow.
