A great 75 minute practice today followed by a nice, if somewhat inadequate,Â five minutes of Savasana.Â
Closing my practice with a good long Savasana is still a challenge and one I will continue to work on.Â But I feel so good and I am ready to move on and tackle the demands of this crazy house.Â I also knew there was a pair of pretty blue eyeballs staring at me from outside the glass door that provides my only barrier from the rest of the house.Â I had an audience.Â An audience anticipating my completing practice very, very quickly…Â so, I did.
Despite a somewhat rushed ending, I really felt like I had made some progress in a few postures.Â Namely anything involving a forward bend.Â I am much more conscious of bending at the hips instead of my waist and lower back.Â As well, when seated I am pretty effectively combining my breath with the posture and allowing myself to extend through the spine on the inhale and deepen the stretch on the exhalation.Â It felt very good today.Â
I was alsoÂ loving the twists.Â A good wringing is necessary these days.
I’m feeling pretty zen about this upcoming inaugural class I will be teaching in a few days.Â While I was allowing myself to get right bound about it earlier in the week as of yesterday I forced myself to step back and get some perspective.Â This is something I have thought about doing for some years, now and I am now fortunate enough to be asked to do so by a close, safe group of friends and neighbors.Â It’s all good.Â I will certainly expand and grow my own practice through this opportunity while, I hope,Â providing some fun and oh soÂ beneficial physical activity to some very lovely women.
