I haven’t been practicing much. Life seems to get in the way.
Last week I had a terrible stomach bug. Saturday morning I felt well enough to go to my regular class. I was nervous but for no reason. I did well; my practice was fulfilling and I left happier than I’d been in a week. It’s nice that I’ve gotten to the point where I’m OK with settling into Child’s pose if I need to; not judging myself is liberating.
I still remember the class I had after my last post. Again, I was nervous because I hadn’t been on my mat in some time. That class was fantastic! It was warmer (but not hot) so I think that helped me. I sank deeper into so many poses and they felt soooo good. Even my teacher commented on the deepness that I’ve been able to access. I was easily able to get my right hand on the ground for Revolved Triangle.
That said, I’m still working through my injury; still babying it. It’s time to start pushing just a tiny bit so that I’m more equal on both sides.
I have things I want to do. Yoga things. Aerial yoga is at the top of the list. There’s one studio here that offers it twice a week: once on Monday nights and again on Tuesday evenings. Monday is my regular class so Tuesday it is. I’ll have to leave work a little early to get there on time. Maybe next week if the stars align.
There’s a week in October that’s going to be split between days in Las Vegas and days at a resort just outside of Vegas. I would LOVE to find some opportunities to practice while in Vegas. I think it will be a good antidote from everything that Vegas is.
Every class offers something: Time away from my mat should neither intimidate me nor deter me from practicing.
