Ashtanga Mysore Practice Journal
I had to keep my practice short to attend an early meeting at work today. When I said short, it was still an hour and half practice. Since I haven't done the second half of seated sequence (from Upavistha Konasana to Setu Bandhasana) in the primary series for awhile, I decided to do the full primary series this morning.
I was surprised that I wasn't rusty with those poses. My body still remembered the "shapes" of the poses. I remembered how challenging they were when I first started practicing, especially Setu Bandhasana, but they seemed "easy" now compared to the second series. Because I skipped the second series, my back was stiff. It took me few extra rounds of Urdhva Dhanurasana to warm up before doing drop back. It was still a good practice but I just noticed the difference in my body.
Every now and then, I like to work on basic poses to refine the alignment, engage the bandhas and connect to the breath. And today was one of those days.
