I took Karen's advice and Tim Miller's advice (via Julie) and banned the thinking today. I just went to practice. And it was good. Not quite as good as yesterday, but stuff like that, well, it can't happen every day. I am glad to feel like I am back in the swing of things. Working on a couple of big picture things right now:
- ujayi breaths in each asana
- learning to practice in any weather, in any clothing - it shouldn't matter what I am wearing. A towel to wipe off the excess sweat should be enough. Other than that, no rolling and unrolling of pants, no picking up my shirt so that I can use the sweat on my skin to slide my arms around, etc.
- no dawdling between poses. Just do the practice.
