Mysore practice 5/3/19


It’s been a very long time since I attended Anna’s class. And I went there yesterday evening. It was super nice sweating like crazy and hearing others’ breathing. I felt I was home :-) After that, I gave my Ashtanga class. Some people stayed for 2nd class. I was thinking of myself few years back. I was also like that. So today... waking up was very hard. I had a very weird dream and couldn’t sleep well. Nontheless I woke up at 6am and got ready to go to the shala. As it’s the Carnival holiday season, we only have Tuesday and Thursday sessions from 7 to 9. It’s my normal days but the time is a bit inconvenient for me. But as I had to go to the clinic by 10am, I could go and practice without any stress. There were already many people. I put my mat again in the centre in the front row. I got help from Lynne in prasarita padottanasana C (as always) and from a lady (don’t know the name) in utthita hasta padangusthasana. Again, I didn’t feel heavy nor tired despite my worries. My body’s got really used to this routine. Maybe.. it’s because I am not taking any hormones now. In supta kurmasana, ladies next to me were also doing the same. So I was waiting a bit for Lynne and another lady to help me. This time I crossed my ankles but couldn’t hold my hands. When can I hold them by myself.. I don’t know. Just keep practicing. In urdhva dhanurasana, the lady really opened my chest and made my arms straight. It was a little bit intense but I felt so great. After that, Lynne helped me doing dropback and comeup and I could really feel that going down has become easier/more comfortable as my chest was really open. Wow!! :-) But... when I had to come up, I lost control and banged my head on the floor!!! Awwwwwwww. I came up straight away and didn’t feel much pain (luckily). And did the dropback, comeup again. Haha I was not embarassed but felt a bit funny. I just laughed about it and did paschimottanasana. In sirsasana, I could again do urdhva dandasana and stayed for 15 and 10 breaths each. I am getting stronger in my headstand! But on the way out of the shala... I thought of me falling again, and said to myself... maybe I was thinking too much. Thinking too much of 1) oh! today’s dropback feels so easy and my arms/chest feel so light 2) oh... when can I finally do this on my own 3) oh... how long it will take to go to the clinic after the practice... etc etc. In that short moment of practice... my head was filled with so many thoughts. Anyways overall it was another good practice. I am really in love <3
