Argh...allergies. I slept poorly last night and woke up exhausted and stuffy at 6 a.m. I went back to sleep only to wake up two hours later more exhausted than I was before and even more congested. I feel like my entire body is a big ITCH.

But I rallied and went for a 45 minute walk with the pup, yawning the whole way. By lunchtime, I was so miserable and tired that I knew I couldn't practice. I took a nap that stretched into over two hours.

So I decided to take it easy and did a 30 minute Hatha practice. I flowed through a few sun salutations, did some standing poses and several seated poses. I based the practice on a sequence I'm teaching this week in my Hatha classes. It's a sequence that I taught in the Fall and I'm now remembering that I didn't like it very much. Probably need to rework it a bit or think of something else for classes the rest of the week.

I've clearly adjusted to doing a longer and more vigourous practice, which is a good thing! :-) With the brief Hatha practice, I didn't feel like I had done enough yoga. My practice felt too short. If I had more time, I would have done an hour-long restorative practice.
