Day one hundred and ninety two

1 Comment

It started out good. I was a bit sleepy but eager to get warmed up in the hot room. I drank water, maybe not enough. I had eaten, maybe too close to class. Sometimes you don’t know how your body will react and by time we were finishing standing bow pulling I could feel that I was in for a rough ride. I sat out one set for each of the remaining standing poses. I did not even attempt rabbit, at that point I had some pretty dark thoughts like ‘oh wow I’m going to die’ followed by ‘oh come on! no you’re not…this is bad but you’re not dying’. I was so close to bolting for the door. But somehow I didn’t. I continued to lie there, suffering, trying not to suffer. Somehow I was able to stay in the room and keep my mind relatively calm. My lungs, heart and body were another story, they were trying to get out. They were battling with my brain to get them out of there but my mind intervened and I survived. I did pretty much bolt right when final savasana started. After we said our ‘namates’ I was out! I had to cool off ASAP. I’m finally home and starting to feel normal. Some classes…

On another note. It was a beautiful day and I got out for a little ski with a great friend.

I have challenged myself to do yoga everyday for one year and thought I'd blog about it. I have been practicing yoga on and off and back and forth for about 9 years and I have decided that it is time for me to really delve in and figure out what it's all about, if it is something I want to make part of my life. I also thought this might put some discipline in to my day and be a fun way to express my thoughts and share some pictures that may or may not have anything directly to do with yoga.
