It’s the end of October, time to reflect on my practice.
I see strength and weaknesses:
What causes a setback always are the breaks for a week or so. I might have reasons for focusing on something else. Not every reason is an excuse. Nevertheless it would be much better to keep practicing on a daily basis. It’s always better to have a short practice than none at all.
It’s important to imply what I consider as useful. It’s filming. I don’t know why I avoid it. I don’t need to publish it. It’s only for me. In addition it would be very good to hold asanas longer than only 5 breaths.
I often omit the last asana. It’s so important to relax at the end. Today I lied in savasana. I felt like in paradise.
There are a lot of things that are great:
I have established a home practice. I’m able to practice two hours, that is I have a rather concentrated practice. Practicing at home allows me to adjust the practice to my needs.
The time of my practice is perfect. I practice before breakfast on an empty stomach. The mornings are perfect. I’ve tested everything else as well.
I might take breaks, but I always return to the mat.
I never forget to appreciate that I’m able to practice. Every session ends with a silent yet intensive ‘THANK YOU’.
Having listed this I’ve also created a plan for November:
Filming and holding some asanas for a minute or longer would be fantastic.
I won’t omit savasana.
A month without a break would be perfect.
