I practised at the house this morning. It’s always easy to get up early at the house because I never sleep well away from home.
But oh, oh, oh, it’s cold and drafty in that house. Despite the space heater on full blast, I couldn’t build up a good internal fire. I didn’t even need to wet my arms for Garba Pindasana because they slid right through my legs on smooth, non-sticky skin. Because I wasn’t sweating.
I hate that.
All the same, I had a good practice and I’m glad I showed up on my mat. It was 90 minutes of joy on a lazy Sunday morning. Can’t beat that. :-D
And now, it’s time for this week’s instalment of The Internet Asks...featuring the latest search terms from my access stats (overall access numbers are going down, oddly enough. Am I getting dull?):
astanga why saturday rest day
The most common explanation is that Guruji wanted a day to spend with family and decreed Saturday the official rest day to accommodate this. I’m well into my 13th month of continuous daily practice and though I can definitely see the benefits of this approach, I’m looking forward to February when I’ll be adding a day of rest to my weekly yoga round.
space heater astanga
FTW. Especially in cold winter climes. Especially in chilly, drafty old houses.
We leave trails?! *furtively glances around*
