Home Practice # 2

This morning was already busy with some errands I needed to run. By the time I was finished, I questioned if I wanted to still practice today. Then I figured I was already sweaty from the cleaning I just finished doing so sure why not? Doing the same thing I did yesterday, this time I went back and grabbed the August 2008 Yoga Journal and opened to the Home Practice.


Warm Up: Other than cleaning the bathroom? 5 rounds of Sun Salutations and my Tree Pose to regain focus.

YJ Practice: I did follow step by step this time and not skip anything. For the lunges I held for five breaths, forward bends eight. As you can see it all led up to Hanumanasana which was difficult since I only have one block and for this pose I usually use two.

Fun Time: I kept it simple today with a couple of forearm stands against the wall. Once down, did a Full Wheel for backbend and Savasana. After Savasana I sat for about a minute which felt like the cherry on top of a sundae.

Total practice time today was 20 minutes. I'm glad I went ahead and squeezed this in. The time certainly goes fast once you get going. Cindy from Yoga and a Latte wrote a great entry, Why a Home Practice? that is definitely worth reading.
