yoga practice re-started

IT's been a long weekend here, which was wonderful. Time to laze around, time to be in the moment, time to do some yoga again. I started off by going to a vinyasa class at work on Friday lunchtime, and then on Saturday I went back to my normal class. I cannot begin to think how long it has been since I was there ... but it was so good to be back and practicing again, even though a reduced, shortened practice. Lots of adjustment/alignment in Parsvottanasana ... a lot to think about there!

Then on Monday I went to my friend Helen's in the morning and we did a yoga practice. And - wow! I was so stiff. I could hardly get my hands to the floor in the sun salutes! Really showed me I had just been playing at yoga practice in the past few weeks, if that's what happens after one shortened practice at the shala. It is, as the saying goes, 'all good'!!

Apart from that I didn't do very much at all ... went to the library, wrote a few emails, made a few phone calls. Made some bread. I've kind of given up on sourdough (making) for the moment, and tried a 'no-knead' recipe from one of Bill Granger's books (Bill's Basics). It turned out quite nice, though I think I should have left it in a bit longer.
