Boxing Day practice

I spent Christmas afternoon snoozing mostly on the beach at out shack, that is until a woman in her 30’s arrived, who typified everything bad about a Brit on holiday, turning the music up to blaring, dancing around, banging in to people, smoking, drinking and screaming “Come on India“, I left along with some of the other patrons, one person ruined the lovely beach side ambiance. I couldn’t face food last night, my cold rendered me too knackered, just had a drink with some people and crashed out again, waking at 6.30am this morning, at which point I decided to go to practice, as it was my last opportunity for self practice here, before I go home on Sunday. I wasn’t too stiff surprisingly, but I just lacked the energy after a day of sleeping and eating hardly anything.

Standing were ok, though I only did 5 A’s and 3 B’s to conserve energy, into seated and I was beginning to wonder if this was such a good idea, so just did vinyasas between poses. Surprised myself by binding Marichyasana D on the first side, my knee wasn’t up for the 2nd side, common sense prevailed for a change. After my new Bhujapidasana went ok, I was looking forward to Kurmasana and Supta K. part one was ok, but I just couldn’t find the energy to wriggle into full pretzel, I didn’t even manage to bind my hands. I got help in Urdva Paschimottanasana from Katie, more support really than an adjustment, allowing me to stretch the feet and legs, knowing I wouldn’t fall back.

No 2nd series today, I am not sure how I had got this far, backbends were crap, I just didnt have the energy, so did some bridges and went into the shoulderstand sequence and rest of closing, before gratefully laying down for Savasana, which lasted about 30 minutes, as I was finding it hard to summon the energy to actually move.

The rest of the morning was spent at Orangeboom doing brunch and reading the paper, talking to A. and A. and some others. I am glad I made the effort to practise, my cold seems to be drying up, but I just feel really tired, luckily I don’t exactly have to do much for the rest of the day!
