Yoga Journal #66: "learning"

Can’t remember if I did yoga on this day!? (This week was so busy and I’m trying to catch up with this journal!) Current date is 24th March) Week was filled with anatomy “learning” (which mainly means sprawled on a yoga mat with paper everywhere and drinking too much coffee, whilst checking instagram. Should probably…

Yoga Journal #65: I am enough.

Did the exam sequence this morn – got two postures mixed up and forgot Badakonasana – but timing was good! Did a full set of Kriyas this morning as well. And a little bit of Pranayama at the end. Although it feels pretty indulgent since the “outcomes” of it aren’t as clearly visible as say…

Yoga Journal #62: Beautiful Subtleties.

Had such an amazing thing today in asana. During Purvottanasana – I had my head tipped back and had my drishti to the third eye and I began to notice the imbalance in the strength of each of my eyes – how my focus was more dominant on one side than the other. It has…

Yoga Journal #61: Pushing, with softness.

Woke up early – didn’t do home practice because of yoga in the evening. Did quite a bit of anatomy learning and feeling calm about it all rather than I think lots of people are feeling quite stressed about it all. I guess I’m just SOOO interested in this stuff that it’s not about learning…

Yoga Journal #60: The Sweet Spot.

Woke up early again – decided to do yoga at a studio – to also kind of build up a bit of rapport with the studio owners. Was a good class – getting into the hip flexors and lots of balances which is what I need! I think it’s quite good though to have a…

Yoga Journal #57: Giant candles

Rest day from Yoga – body probably needed it – woke up late too – probably just tired! Had a few different projects to work on, started writing/finishing my observations – want to get those finished now! Wasted quite a bit of time being useless on social media. Probably due to lack of yoga this…

Yoga Journal #56: Veggie-ism and Vials of blood.

Today’s yoga was a restorative yoga session to balance out yesterday’s power yoga – much needed! Absolutely loved it – way more than I thought I would – did the whole thing with basically my eyes closed! Savasana was SO good and SO deep at the end! Maybe I’m just really into Savasana these days?!…
