I seem to be forgetting to post to either of my blogs lately. I am practicing, regularly, but not daily, alas. However, the rhythm of my mornings is going to change shortly, because I’m switching from a morning aqua exercise class to one at 5 pm, so I should be able to reestablish a morning routine following my walk.
Sometimes it seems as though all I do is what my friend and teacher Jill calls “health practices.” Walking, aqua exercise, yoga, massages, sheesh. All these practices together have really helped my energy level and my Lyme arthritis, though. And I really really want to add in a routine pranayama practice.
Mary Obendorfer said asana prepares you for pranayama, which prepares you for meditation. It makes sense to me.
