Most of the time I pre-plan my practice a little bit. Sometimes I lie in bed, talking myself into getting up, and think about which poses I’m going to do. Sometimes I actually write down a list so that I don’t forget something. But sometimes I just haul the mat out and decide on the fly what I’m doing.
Starting off in Trikonasana (triangle) is always good. Then that leads me right into Parsvakonasana (extended side angle). Then I sigh and think, “Well, I guess if I did those two I should do Ardha Chandrasana (half-moon).” One balancing pose leads to another, so there’s Vrksasana, and if I’m feeling brave (which I must admit is not often enough) I’ll do Virabhadrasana III (warrior III).
I tend to ignore the revolved poses in my home practice, which means that I struggle with them in class. Maybe my YoMo resolution will be to practice those more often.
