And THIS is my mind on YOGA*:
*And by "yoga", I mean yoga done the way Sir has demanded of me. I finished up THROUGH Garba Pindasana in 40, that's right FORTY, minutes today. I didn't rush. I just DID it. I just did the practice. I added nothing. And every once in a while, or more often than that even, I would notice a place where I eliminated a "tick" or a "flourish". There was even time for me to get smooshed in Paschimotannasana after SIX backbends. And I wasn't the last person to get into Savasana or the last one to leave. It was a wonderful feeling. And this, despite heavy traffic and getting to Shala X after the Invocation.
Now, to somehow not get attached to how good my practice felt today....
