home practice

When I can’t motivate to go to class, it’s good to have a home practice. It’s nice to settle in and think about what my body needs instead of just going through some sun salutations and hoping that something opens up.

Lots of Uttanasana and Paschimottanasana (not pictured). Forward bends, either standing or sitting help shut down the brain, which is what really needed to take a rest today. My mind has been running away these days. Lots of ideas and creative energy, which is great, but not when you’re trying to get to bed before 2AM.

This is one of the reasons I keep missing noon class.

I haven’t been motivated to cook either. Despite awesome soup, I’ve been living on bulgur & veggies & popcorn. Again with the popcorn. There are worse addictions I guess.

My right psoas is still tight and gives me trouble when I’m doing the simplest of things…like walking. In doing research, a lot of this has to do with the fact that I’m practically flat footed due to my early addiction to flip flops. I need to get over my aversion to going to see a doctor about correcting this, thinking I can yoga my way out of the psoas stiffness. Strengthening my core will help too, but you know me, ab work makes me want to throw up. I need to get over that as well.

My body keeps changing. A lot of it for the better. I need to remember it’s supposed to be slow going.

Also, I want to swim in the ocean.

Happy Diwali everyone. Light some diyas or candles tomorrow. Your good has won over the evil within yourself. This is important to recognize. Love.
