Mysore practice 10-11/10/19
I was super busy I forgot to write my practice journal. Oh well….. One thing comes to my mind now is that I had minor pain in left shoulder so had to stay only 10 breaths in urdhva dandasana(half bend after sirsasana). I guess it was a good practice as usual. Rolling up from supta konasana was beautiful. Back bend was okay too and I did three drop backs. One with Anne and two others alone. Drop back practice was fun but I felt a bit of pain in my lower back… Argh it’s frustrating I don’t remember much!!

Anne practiced together with us. It was a different setting but as good as other days. But my practice was a bit hasty and my breathing was not as deep. Though I was sweating like crazy. These days I sweat a lot like summer days! I focused a lot on opening shoulders and chest today. My first part in utthita hasta padangusthasana was okay. I was surprisingly stable on this side but I was not so stable in the second side. It’s usually the other way round but…;; On the second side, Anne came and helped me. All the seated asanas felt good even if it was a bit fast. When in transition in both bujapidasana and supta kurmasana my feet didn’t touch the ground. I intentionally stayed a bit long in titibasana and bakasana. I really have to practice this way more often. Whenever I am in supta kurmasana with ankles crossed behind the neck, I feel at peace. Whenever I am here, I want to stay long. :-) Garbha pindasana was okay. I heard something from my hip creases in baddhakonasana folding… Oops. But I didn’t feel any pain so I proceeded. After supta konasana I started closing sequence. Back bend felt not so good today and I think it was because my breathing was not so deep today. Oh well.. at least I’ve done my three round and did paschimattanasana. Shoulder stand and following asanas were done in usual way. Even though I didn’t have much time I stayed 30 breaths in sirsasana and 20 in half bend. I felt so light and good I stayed longer than usual. I felt a bit of pain again on my left shoulder so I tried to push onto the right one. After that I didn’t feel much pain. Good! Utplitih was also about 12 breaths today. Since because I was greedy with my asana practice;; I didn’t have much time for savasana. I was just lying there for 1 min and left the room. I had a small talk with Anne and left the shala with content heart. I am grateful that I could be on the mat today.
