Shockingly (only to me), two yoga classes a day plus teaching plus a full time job plus my family is too much! I do have to admit that with the idea in mind I’ve been more focused and actually been on the mat quite a lot, so the plan was not an entire goof. But really, who did I think I am?
So, in the interest of maintaining my home practice, which feeds everything else, I’m focusing on Bikram this week. I feel a bit guilty and disloyal to my studio… a feeling partially dissolved by writing those words.
So I’ll go to a later class today and spend my morning with my home practice preparing to teach. I really should get rid of the mean coach in my head who thinks that blinding focus, grinding schedules and deprivation are assets.
I did notice last night that my teaching is being affected by my new interest. I’m focusing on stillness and muscular activation more, and sequencing based on wringing & flooding actions. All to the good, I think.
Off to my mat!
