An easy morning with the extra hour in bed at the end of British Summer time, except I can’t actually remember having much of a summer. Late morning practice, I like to practice around this time as my body has gained some flexibility and my stomach is reasonably empty, but have the energy from breakfast, croissants and Muesli, yeah I know croissants have wheat in them, but it was a small one and if I end up paying later or tomorrow with IBS I will only have myself to blame.
Standing postures felt easy and open, even the balances, my body accepts these asanas now, especially the twists which are noticeably becoming deeper, its when we get to seated poses that the easy flow stops and I have to switch on and be more aware. Though having sat in Janu A while watching a football programme earlier, all the postures up to Janusirsasana B were ok, C will never happen, DK told me once this one is there to make you appreciate your own physicality and your own limitations, so I never push this one, it pisses my knee off too much. Marichyasana A,B and C were all done just about though D will only return when my knee does. I think my arms have grown as grabbing my toe in Supta Padangusthasana has become a lot easier to do, a couple of years ago I needed a belt to reach. Ubhaya and Urdva P were also a bit better today.
Closing are good and bad, Urdva Dhanurasana x 3 have become mentally easier to do, I used to lay on my mat psyching myself up and getting cold before trying to push up.Though Sirsasana was crap today, I balanced, but only briefly. One day, maybe it will be in Bali again, I will have one of those practices where it comes together, but for now I take what I can from practice.
