It was a good week. I feel especially happy about my morning practice at the studio. I have a home practice area, but the studio is really sweet. I love the gleaming hardwood floors, the skylights, even the smell which is combination of floor polish, and witch hazel.
I practiced by myself for the most part this week. One day Cheryl joined me for awhile, then changed and left for school (she’s a teacher.)
I sit in the front as the teacher, but I much prefer the back corner for my solo practice. Here is my little setup.
I light the candle, put on a little soft music and begin. Most mornings I start with some strap stretches for my hamstrings. I looked up and saw my toes sillouetted in the skylight.
On Wednesday afternoon I taught a Chair Yoga workshop at the University, so on Wednesday morning I “road tested” my sequence.
My practice tends to start soft because I am tired and stiff in the morning, but by by the end of the hour I am moving and breathing well and feeling great.
I felt really “glowy” yesterday and took this selfie to remind myself how serene and happy yoga makes me feel.
Yeah, It was a good yoga week.
