- Knowing your body
- Stretching your body farther. In class the other day we observed that in normal life you never step 4 1/2 feet apart. Once in a while you have to reach up high, but not often.
- Knowing your breath.
- Connecting your breath with the world’s breath.
- Going inward.
I’m strangely reluctant to talk about the spiritual aspects of yoga. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I fear it will sound like a bunch of woo-woo, or maybe it’s because it might scare people away from yoga. I’m going to have to mull this over.
In other news, I was planning on spending an hour or so downstairs on the mat before supper, but there’s a person in a black t-shirt down there listening to metal (loud) and lifting weights. Time to close the doors to my office and do a bit in here.
