general blather, mulling things over, YoMo

YoMo days 7, 8, and 9

Ooh, I’ve just got to keep up!  On Wednesday I didn’t practice in the morning, but I went to Ageless.  The class was excellent.  A brand new student was in the class, and as a result Kim helped her quite a bit, leaving us in very long holds.  I try hard not to come out of the pose before the teacher says, but that bent front leg in Parsvakonasana (extended side angle) and in Virabhadrasana II (warrior II) was just going to crumble so I had to pop back up.  That’s one thing class is very good for – working you hard.  I never seem to work as hard at home as I do in class, and I don’t know why.

I did my focus poses – Upavistha Konasana (seated wide angle) and Supta Virasana (reclining hero) – as TV poses.  Better than not doing them at all.

Yesterday was another zoomy day with waaaaaay too much computer time, so I did Savasana for ten minutes before dinner.  (Just a question:  My office door is closed.  Doesn’t that mean another family member should not open it?)

Today my sister Priscilla and my friend (and massage therapist) Dana are coming over to do a restorative practice with me. This is something I’m trying to do every Friday afternoon. We did it last week, with two additional people. Very nice.
