Yoga wakes me up

With the dire situation at work with the new system, I have been getting home really tired with glazed over eyes from staring at a screen all day, I could quite happily crash out at 5:15 when I get home. Somehow I resist the urge and like tonight manage some backbending. Later on, being bored with Obama dominating the news I decided to practice, no Kino dvd tonight, but I did remember Kino’s instruction to engage the legs and feet in standing to give that solid foundation. I could feel the difference, its good to be reminded of the basics once in a while. I felt good after standing so ploughed on and had a good flow going, though again modifying second sides of Mari B & D for my knees sake, but I had nevertheless got warm and bendy enough to bind myself up into a nice sugary pretzel.

After adding in my cheaters Ustrasana I did some Urdva Dhanurasanas and had a go at walking my hands in, I can’t stay up as long, but presume the back must be bending more. Stood up for some hanging back practice, but instead of going as far as I could I only went as far as the length of my outbreath, then tried to have a steady in breath as I came back up, so no dizzyness.

Now after doing practice I am more awake and happier than I have been for most of the day. If I could ever get up and do practice in the morning maybe I would be more awake and happier during the day, rather than when the day is over. But at 6am my house is cold, though under my duvet its toasty warm!

    Afternoon/evening practioners unite! I don’t know how you can get up so early and practice on Sunday even.

    I hope things at work improve soon, sounds horrible. Glad you have practice to even out your days.

    Sundays are different, I love practice at my shala, when the train lets me get there, its the one true bright spot nowadays.

    If the job situation wasn’t so bad I would leave, I hate the place!
