Couldnt wait to start practice this morning, was keen to get on my mat and work through my emotions. Tossed and turned from 3am…mind too busy. Astanga has a magic of getting you completely present in your body. Sometimes my body cries out on the mat….why am i here i cant wait for the finishing sequence…which for me is the reward for practice, I had my moments of that today but had my extreme highs as well. Like when Michael adjusted me in Supta Kurmasana and got me so flat and when he took me back to drop back, which i havent done since my shoulder injury and i felt amazing. Then a beautiful squash from Coco.

Battled with meditation again, need to learn the discipline¬† of sitting still…

Before class Minnar gave us a beautiful demonstration..
