It seems that I may have found the Valium for the Morning Madness … Morning Mysore. In a studio. With other heated bodies.
I’ve been neglecting Mysore classes and finding all sorts of excuses to not go, but today showed me how important it really is for your practice. The heat and energy of the other bodies as well as the calmness of the breathing egging you along, really helps.
That’s what I enjoy about Ashtanga – always surprising me.
To any other beginners out there, just give it a go. If you have a good teacher, he/she will be patient with you and help you along.
As for back-bends…they can still kiss my asana. The battle continues!
