Discipline?

How’s your yoga practice going since the colder weather has arrived?
Sometimes yoga students think their teachers bounce out of bed, raring to get to their yoga practice.
I’m not bad, but I notice since recent holiday disruptions of my practice routine that now that I’m home again, I’m not bouncing back.
In fact, the last two mornings, I was very happy to practice in the late afternoon – when my body is more warmed up, when the weather has warmed up. Restorative poses seem much more inviting, too, in the arvo – especially when I’ve been mucking around, building up the no-dig gardens with compost and wet newspapers.
Maybe I’m in a new routine now, one that let’s me enjoy a cuppa and a bowl of steaming porridge first thing in the morning, then sirsasana, sarvangasana, setu bandhasana, viparita karani, and pranayama last thing in the afternoon.

  1. Wow! Is that a present day Lotus picture? You Go, Girlfriend! With my new hips, I think my lotus days are gone. I’m still a nice person though:)

    • You have a great sense of humour, Penny, and I love your website. Re. Padmasana, the last time I could do it with any chance of not dislocating was pre-bilateral surgery. (The photo is from 1990!)
      Who knows, we might even be nicer people because we don’t waste all that time bound up in lotus.
      BTW, I have a yoga practice on MP3, too, with a visual guide on the website: http://www.liveyogalife.com

  2. Hey Miss Eve,
    Yes the cooler weather is here – finally and now that I’ve sort of started my own home practice (after 20 years…) I hit the mat regardless with more energy BECAUSE of the yoga 🙂
    That’s a nice passive sequence there and have kept that for a burl this week at some stage and pleased to hear you’re keeping up the growing pile for our “no dig” garden space. Come October and she will be ready to plant – EXCITEMENT.
    Big loves and welcome home ..

    • Hi there, Friend,
      How did you do that design next to your comment?
      That’s so great that you are doing home practice. So good to combine it with occasional classes.
      And as for the chill in the air, well, yoga warms your heart, and that’s what matters 🙂
